Comment(by Quozl):

 Any part of an olpc.fth can be used, provided it is executed.  I can't be
 more specific without more information; such as the existing olpc.fth
 file, and whether it is executed on every boot or only when a USB drive is

 Yes, the code can test the year.  For example, the following code tests
 that the year is less than 2012, and skips the ntp-set-clock if the year
 is 2012 or later.  The code would replace the last two lines in my
 previous comment on this ticket.
