So my clock is sightly wrong during boot until the ntpd/chrony/ntpdate
fixes it. It doesn't give errors so i can live with that.

One could run a while with a read-write / to get an initial /etc/adjtime
for the RTC drift. After that the RTC hopefully doesn't change. So while
I agree that this can't completly be fixed I think it can be ignored.

I guess you could just have a /etc/defaults/hosts.deny that you copy to
/run and link /etc/hosts.deny -> /run/hosts.deny before starting
tcp-wrapped network services.
