(Edited for clarity)

Well, you'd have to get the correct oscillator on the motherboard. There are several But, that sort of would be the correct way to do it. It would not be trivial, I suspect.

I figure we've beaten this to death. I propose giving the others here a rest.

I will comment that I have great respect for Linux, the kernel. The desktops that find their wayward ways to Linux machines leave "something" to be desired.

Yes, it's the difference between send (20 Mbps) and receive (200 Mbps) and that
asymmetry which introduces an unknown path delay difference which isn't
accounted for, and hence the offset I noted.  As there will be a difference,
all that NTP does is to use the average.

For low interrupt latency from the serial port control lines - the source of
the PPS signal - even the Raspberry Pi 1 is significantly better under Linux
than a typical Windows PC, at least using standard device drivers.
