Ok, so this adds a new event type "extoff" which is for eternal
timestamp offset, and it allows reporting the offset instead of the raw
time.

Userspace can request this feature via the new PTP_EXT_OFFSET flag, and
drivers will report it as a new event type.

You mention GNSS, but is there an example or a link to a driver change
you could provide to show its use?

I think the concept seems reasonable and the code seems correct.

Thanks,
Jake
