I checked: olpc-update-query only sets the clock if it's off by more
than 24hours, so it cannot serve as a replacement for ntpdate.

Besides, I can't find where NetworkManager would be running ntpdate...
The most logical place would be /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d, but
there's nothing.

The ntp packate drops a script in /etc/dhcp/dhclient.d, but it seems to
kick into action only if the dhcp server provides an ntp server option.

My conclusion: currently there's no straight-forward way to set the
clock on the XO (even when we don't care about the time hijacking
