Maybe the problem is that systemd doesn't know about any of this. According 
to chkconfig, ntpd is on, and according to diff, /etc/localtime and 
/usr/share/zoneinfo/US/Eastern contain entirely identical bits. Yet, each 
Rawhide boot produces filesystem mount times and clock time off by the TZ offset.
