I agree that is a much better approach if you are ok with the variance 
introduced by synchronizing the HW timestamps with the CPU clock.

But if you want to precisely measure one-way delays, and if you have the hw 
timestamp units synchronized across the nodes, then you need the hardware 
timesetamp. 

Or maybe I am stuck on this idea because of doing things this way for a long 
time and there is a better solution?

Thanks,
