I have had such HW, and I usually just set "fault_reset_interval ASAP"
in the configuration.

The vast majority of HW is not limited in this respect, and there are
no mainline drivers that support such HW.  My feeling is that the
linuxptp stack shouldn't be filled with special cases just for buggy
or deficient HW designs.
