There is no correction necessary. The speed change itself does not have any 
impact because the transmission time is symmetrical.

Given host A on a 1Gb link and host B on a 100Mb link:

  A -> Switch transmission time 754ns
  Switch -> B transmission time 7540ns
  Total time 8294ns

  B -> Switch transmission time 7540ns
  Switch -> transmission time 754ns
  Total time 8294ns

The propagation delay is symmetrical.

Unless there are a backlog of packets on one of the involved ports, the switch 
has zero impact on accuracy.
