Several devices using the Broadcom BCM4751 chip (Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Nexus S, Asus Transformer....) GPS seems to be reporting the wrong GPS time (1 day in the future) starting 2012. Seems to be a leap year issue in the broadcom firmware. Happens on different devices (Samsung,Asus) and Android versions (2.x to 4.x)


So the GPS timestamp issue I mentioned in https://plus.google.com/u/0/112215288642007559493/posts/KqGQFQwySvG seems to be a Broadcom firmware issue.
This is really annoying, as I don't see this getting fixed soon and android.location.Location.getTime() used to be a reliable way of getting the UTC timestamp of a GPS.
