      .`chrony` rebased to version 4.5
      The `chrony` suite has been updated to version 4.5. Notable changes include:

      * Added periodic refresh of IP addresses of Network Time Protocol (NTP) sources specified by hostname. The default interval is two weeks and it can be disabled by adding `refresh 0` to the `chrony.conf` file.

      * Improved automatic replacement of unreachable NTP sources.

      * Improved logging of important changes made by the `chronyc` utility.

      * Improved logging of source selection failures and falsetickers.

      * Added the `hwtstimeout` directive to configure timeout for late hardware transmit timestamps.

      * Added experimental support for corrections provided by Precision Time Protocol (PTP) transparent clocks to reach accuracy of PTP with hardware timestamping.

      * Fixed the `presend` option in `interleaved` mode.

      * Fixed reloading of modified sources specified by IP address from the `sourcedir` directories.
