For running this selftest `isochron` tool is required. That's neither
packaged on Linux distributions or available in the kernel source. I
guess, it has to be built from your Github account/repository?

Why do you need the UTC to TAI offset? isochron could just use CLOCK_TAI
as clockid for the task scheduling.

Seems reasonable to assume two cpus.

Why SCHED_RR?
