Support clock synchronization by GPS

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Use case: the user wants the device to have the correct time.
It would be nice if, when a GPS connection is active, the device would check
it's clock against the GPS reported time and set the device clock as needed.
This needn't be a full implementation of NTPD, for example (although that would
be nice) - just a simple cross-check when the fix is aquired.
It would also be nice if, when a network connection is established, the device
could do a check against a network NTP server and set the clock. Again, this
needn't bee a full NTPD implementation, but rather just a quick ntpdate.
Ideally, the device would, upon getting a network connection:
1) IF a NTP server were given via DHCP (option 42, per RFC 1533, RFC 2132),
2) Failing that, use mDNS/DNS-SD (Zeroconf) and look for a NTP server.
3) Failing that, see if the default gateway is running an NTP server.
4) Failing that, try pool.ntp.org.

A third-party solution is available until Nokia addresses this:
Re-setting the assignee, since Carlos moved on to other tasks.
Please note that this does not affect the legitimacy of the bug in any way.
It's a purely administrative operation. Sorry for the noise.
As written in comment 2, gps-clockd is available at http://nitapps.com/
Setting the clock from NTP is bug 472, hence changing the summary to only
moving this to clock because this is the place where i'd look first.
This feature is planned to be officially supported in Harmattan.
Roadmapped for Harmattan. Resolving as fixed since we have agreed that no
actual code is needed to resolve feature requests. Trust the Maemo SW product
