I'm still of the opinion that the section "Feeding ntpd from gpsd" does
not reflect the source code:

The section that explains the differences between root vs. non-root
operation and devices on the command line vs. hotplug needs to be
adjusted now that the root privileges are dropped after setting up the
SHM segments and raising the PPS thread priority (commit

Otherwise Sanjeev's patches didn't change the tuning section AFAICS.
