I can tell you right now that the variation between GPS and a good
cesium clock is on the order of +- 25ns.  With nanosecond resolution,
this gives you about 5 bits.  The variation of the system clock when
synchronized to the GPS receiver is on the order of +-10us as measured
with a parallel port interrupt and a pps line from the gps receiver.
The pps interrupt is measured using a fast interrupt (we hacked ppc to
do fast interrupts for this), so the latency is fairly small and
fairly constant.

I don't have datasets that I can point people at, however.
