For the typical case, if the user have Chrony installed, does he
really want to be able to manually adjust the RTC, at least for a big
backward change?

If not, why simply not disregard when the RTC "time fails to at least
have the time restored from the driftfile."?

I'm copying this from your commit message, that is why I understood
this would fix it, since I find this behaviour optimal.
