I don't know very much about this sort of thing, but I imagine that it
would be difficult to arrange, since fsck needs to be run on an
unmounted filesystem.

I suggest that you go after the cause of the problem, not the symptom.
Do you know why you're getting future times?  The only time I've had
this issue was when my hardware clock was getting altered (due to some
hack that stored data in the RTC nvram, as part of a debugging
procedure for suspend, IIRC).
