Can you please use this?

commit d9535cb7b7603aeb549c697ecdf92024e4d0a650

    ptp: introduce ptp auxiliary worker
    
    Many PTP drivers required to perform some asynchronous or periodic work,
    like periodically handling PHC counter overflow or handle delayed timestamp
    for RX/TX network packets. In most of the cases, such work is implemented
    using workqueues. Unfortunately, Kernel workqueues might introduce
    significant delay in work scheduling under high system load and on -RT,
    which could cause misbehavior of PTP drivers due to internal counter
    overflow, for example, and there is no way to tune its execution policy and
    priority manuallly.
    
    Hence, The kthread_worker can be used insted of workqueues, as it create
    separte named kthread for each worker and its its execution policy and
    priority can be configured using chrt tool.
