Add ntpdate and ntp packages to discovery image
|Target version:||Image 3.4.0|
|Velocity based estimate||-|
In our env it's crucial to sync time, even on discovery nodes. For example, in order to run Chef.
It would be extremely useful if this were supported upstream, as the packages aren't big or pull in many deps.

Good idea, go ahead with the patch if you want. You only need to add the package to packages.ks and I think we need a kernel command line option to be able to set ntp server. I also recommend chrony instead of ntpd.
For the option, just modify the systemd unit to executable a helper script before starting the daemon that will modify "pool" option in /etc/chrony.conf (optional).
