  Ah, yes, I've had that one, and it's really difficult to fix in s6-log,
because by definition an application that timestamps needs "wall clock"
time, not "stopwatch" time.

5 If your machine does not have a CMOS battery, I suggest setting the clock
to a reasonable value in the past in stage 1. This way you're sure
that deadlines won't be computed too far in the future, and the time
uncertainty will only last until you get to run your NTP client.
