I propose an enhancement to the NTP client API (currently, only a routine for setting the system clock using NTP is supported).

The added functionality lets the user retrieve the current time from a NTP server (withour modifying system time). In addition, user callbacks can be scheduled to run just prior/after sending the request and receiving the reply thus allowing to account for round-trip delays.

An NTP client daemon / port of D. Mill's ntp-nanoclock for RTEMS is available from the author.
