Comment(by wmb at firmworks.com):


 That change checks in a file "oatstime.fth" which is a script that sets
 the clock based on a response from an OATS server.  I have tested it on an
 unsecure laptop talking to an oatslite server running on my local net.
 The oatslite server was using a test private key, and the corresponding
 public key is inside the oatstime.fth script.

 To deploy this, it would be necessary to change the public inside the
 script to a deployment-specific one, and to change the IP address of the
 server inside the script.  Both are near the top of the file, clearly
