Indeed, that is the long-term intention… the PocketBeagle sets up a
USB-CDC Ethernet interface… whilst at base when we're programming it, it
can obtain the time via NTP (over the virtual Ethernet link), set the
RTC, then when we take it out to the field, it should have near-enough
correct time that `chronyd` will compensate.

That's good enough long-term, but will require a new board revision to
place a RTC and back-up battery/supercapacitor. :-)
