I doubt they will be added in 6, but 7.4 should have the OPT_CMSG
option. Some minor changes in the chrony code will still be necessary
in order to enable HW timestamping.

Here is a copr repo for Fedora and CentOS 7 which has a patch to
enable HW timestamping.
https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/mlichvar/chrony/

It works even with <7.4 kernels if there is only one interface which
supports HW timestamping as SOF_TIMESTAMPING_OPT_CMSG is not required
in such case.
