Set of patches for the Datetime spoke
 
Let's move on with the Datetime spoke. After applying those patches the only
thing remaining to be implemented in this spoke will be the NTP switch.

Is everybody ok with turning NTP on by default? I think that majority of people
use it anyway and it shouldn't cause any problems. If a user turns NTP off, we
can restore the clock from the hwclock to revert all time modifications.

There was a suggestion from Martin Sivak, that we should definitely add a way to
set a custom NTP server (at least for corporate users). Would simple '+' button
next to the switch be appropriate or do we need some bigger change to the UI?

These patches look fine.

I am okay with NTP on by default. Make sure there's networking up
before doing it, though.

How about just to the right of the switch, a button with the configure
gears like we have elsewhere in the UI?

There appears to be a problem when a language with uknown timezone is
selected. I'll dive into it tomorrow and send one more patch fixing the
issue (I'll squash it with the one that introduced it then before
pushing).

I think the gears is the right way to go...!
