NTP will do a good job of getting the system time set correctly. The
problem I'm having is that even with system time set correctly, new
files are created with a timestamp of 0, which equates to Dec 31,
1969 23:59:59. It's something with the filesystem in general that's
not storing timestamps, as it happens with both jffs2 and ext2
I was hoping someone knew off the top of their head. Since it
doesn't sound like it, I'll dig into the source code and patches and
see if I can't figure it out.
