Yes, I also think that clock-setup should do that, as well as installing
ntpdate in /target, probably.. One question is whether or not to do it
by default.

A trick we could use is comparing the clock to the timestamps in Release
files that d-i has already downloaded. If it's earlier than them, then
the system clearly has issues, and ntpdate could be run by default.
