Sounds like overkill,  and won't always give the correct result.

i.e.  my laptop boots from a FAT fs,  but only has Linux on it.

The FAT fs simply being used as a simple boot / recover FS.

I believe that plan 9 does a similar thing (9fat fs == FAT),
with a FAT based boot filesys.

I've certainly seen other OS's that take a similar approach.

So I'd suggest that the offered patch be chosen - but simply
pick if you want local or UTC as the default.
