Description

There are at least two issues with the external clock as provided by detinfo::DetectorClocksStandard

  1. fExternalClock is never updated to reflect the configuration values
  2. ExternalClock(double) uses the frequency of the trigger clock rather than the external clock one

The initialization should happen with the current time set to TriggerTime(), for consistency with the other clocks.

There is no instance of use of this clock in LArSoft + experiments code base.

Kazu, would you have a look at this?

Also, we request improved documentation. We understand that there is some documentation in MicroBooNE, but more general LArSoft documentation is needed.
