#4749: Clock Driver Validation

 The current testsuite requires additional work to properly validate clock
 drivers. See, for example, this off-by-one bug patch, sent by a user on 26

 -systick->rvr = interval;
 +systick->rvr = interval - 1;
 systick->cvr = 0;

 Currently, the tests do not use an external clock source to verify the
 internal one. We propose to address this by adding tests using the Pulse-
 Per-Second (PPS) functionality from a GPS signal to validate the clock
 drivers over a set time interval. This will help to catch not only errors
 such as the one above, but also potential bugs related to time interval
