Thanks a lot.

I already have another patch here to support milliseconds (for hctosys), 
and I might have another patch ready in a few days, which adjusts the 
system time whenever the HID device sends a timestamp which includes 
milliseconds (enabled by a new module option named adjtime for 
rtc-hid-sensor-time, which is by default off). The basics do already 
work, but I'm just starting to look at how to adjust the system time 
best, so suggestions are welcome. ;)

(Therefor I've now added the maintainers for kernel/time/timekeeping.c 
to cc).
