Hi Edward, 
I have not tried this myself, but with Cumulus you can install any packages you like. Debian has a pkg designed for PTP. Check it out here: https://packages.debian.org/sid/main/ptpd
Let us know how you make out.
thanks
Richard

I know the ASIC supports this, but I do not think switchd has been coded to utilize this yet. So the debian package will work for eth0, but not the front-panel interfaces.

It looks like the PTP Boundary Clock feature will work on mellanox platforms. I am not entirely sure what that means, but that is the only PTP related issue resolved for the upcoming 3.6.0 release.
