Stephen Hemminger Nov. 29, 2023, 4:43 p.m. UTC
  The IEEE 1588 standard has been updated to remove the use
of master-slave terminolgy. Use the terms recommended by
IEEE 1588g-2022 amendment:

  In place of the term “master”, use the term “timeTransmitter”.
  In place of the term “slave”, use the term “timeReceiver”.
