_chrony_ rebased to version 3.2

The _chrony_ packages have been upgraded to upstream version 3.2, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. Notable enhancements include:

 * Support for hardware timestamping with bonding, bridging, and other logical interfaces that aggregate ethernet interfaces
 * Support for transmit-only hardware timestamping with network cards that can timestamp only received Precision Time Protocol (PTP) packets but not Network Time Protocol (NTP) packets 
 * Improved stability of synchronization with hardware timestamping and interleaved modes
 * An improved "leapsectz" option to automatically set the offset of the system clock between International Atomic Time (TAI) and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)

Description Miroslav Lichvar 2017-08-17 15:07:25 UTC
Description of problem:
This a request to rebase chrony to 3.2. It includes a number of bug fixes and improvements related to accuracy with HW timestamping and/or interleaved mode. A new option allows unidirectional HW timestamping on network cards that don't support HW RX timestamping of NTP packets. It can also set the TAI-UTC offset of the system clock from tzdata.
