Yes, that would be a good one to add to the plot. It should
reduce the jitter by 1 or 2 ns and so I suspect the software
corrected sawtooth line would be a few pixels below the
hardware corrected line on my plot.

Tom Clark & Rick Hambly showed a similar test at PTTI 2006:

Improving the Performance of Low Cost GPS Timing Receivers

You'll see the nice plot comparing h/w and s/w on page 15.
They also did a linearity test. Good paper; read it all.
