 Hmm, I wonder whether this shouldn't be enabled via a reverse dependency.  
Or even unconditionally perhaps -- if the initial system time gets set 
from incorrect RTC time (e.g. because it is not battery-backed) it does 
not get less correct than it would be otherwise, does it?

 Any reason for not doing either of these?
