7.8. Timestamp interpolator

The timestamp interpolator increases the resolution of a timestamp. It shifts the input timestamp left by a number of bits, which is configurable but is normally eight, and uses the extra low-order bits to provide a more accurate timestamp value. It does this by monitoring changes to the input timestamp value over time to predict how fast it counts.
