Or have dhcp discovery check for a trigger to run when it has finished.
If there is no route to the ntp server ntpdate could set the trigger,
then retry. That would guarantee that ntpdate runs as early as possible,
and can all be run in the background. It *might*, occasionally, run
twice though; is that a problem?
