This is probably a bad idea, as ntpd will fill up this directory with
logs, and thus slowly eat RAM away from the diskless machine.  I decided
to not make this directory writable to avoid it, as ntpd work fine
without write access to this directory.  The only issue is some warnings
from ntpd, and these can be ignored.

Ah... ok... Thanks! I'll take a even more close look and potentially revert this commit then.
