I think we should change the defaults. Its quite common to use
ntpdate. Does it make a lot of difference if the change is made, what
does it affect?

In addition to this I'd say alos include iptables in the xenU kernel
build, I feel its quite a necessity. Yes it might make the kernel
larger but does that really create aproblem in todays hardware world.
