Hi folks,

the NTP on any version of any connman newer than 1.33 (including latest git 
version) does bizarre things here on RaspberryPi
devices. The time gets set completely wrong. Yesterday, I've found out that 
this seems to be related to the presence/absence of a
real time clock. If I add a small I2C RTC module, everything works as expected. 
But if this module is not installed, the
misbehaviour shows up. It appears the newer time adjustment mechanism via 
adjtimex() is causing this. When reverting to the old
adjtime()/settimeofday() approach as used in 1.33, it works without RTC 
hardware installed.

Any thoughts?
