A resynchronising FF could also be added at the end to clean up the 1 pps if required. You wouldn't need to worry about the maths or OBOBs either.

It’s quite a bit more real estate. An ATTiny45 is available as a TSSOP-8 and would need a 10k resistor (!RESET pullup) and a bypass cap (assuming the input was conditioned, which it would need to be for a discrete solution anyway).
