We "fixed" this in OpenWRT with an init script.

To unsubscribe:
We use OpenWRT, but we are also using monit as an sys v startup partial replacement. Our box comes up and sets time to something fairly recent, so SSL works, and then ntp will kick in later. However, we have stuff that is started by monit to start the network. In our case, this patch works, and, true, may not be good for general use. It may be sufficient to reset the time counters internal to monit instead of re-initting it.

Not necessarily expecting it to be in the mainline, but thought someone might find it useful or have a different solution.
