[USRP-users] GPSDO Support

If you follow the instructions here, and burn the EEPROM, the USRP will 
be configured to select the GPSDO 10 MHz and 1 PPS by default.  As 
indicated in the installation instructions provided with the GPSDO, you 
will have to move a jumper that will connect the GPSDO 10 MHz, and 
disconnect the external 10 MHz reference.  You should not need to do 
anything with the .hdl code.

Have I properly understood your questions?
