You might also ask the NTPsec folks:

A guy over there wrote his oen SHM() driver for a CPG PCIe card.  Your
project not to dis-similar.

Ouch.  But the code to pull kernel PPS time stamps out ofa GPIO pin
is not large.  You might be able to copy it out of gppsd.

It is easy to put time in SHM().  That is a common approach for
uncommon receivers.

If that worked, what's the problem?

Refclock 22 should be a lot easier.

Easier to get SHM to work.
