As our system is based on mandatory https requests, in some degraded
cases, we need to trigger a time synchronization. For example, when
booting with the clock TimeUpdates equal to manual, changing it to
auto does not suffy to update the system time.
Instead adding a API as workaround, why not fixing the problem you
describe? When changing from manual to auto, try to sync?
Please find the attached patch, adding a clock API providing a way
trigger a time synchronization.
I don't like this at all. This is a really ad-hock API for something we
just need to fix internally.
