ntpd Certificate Loading

ntpd seems to load the TLS certificate and key before dropping
privileges. Unfortunately, when it tries to *reload* the certificate
later, it has dropped privileges and fails. This is a bit of a trap, as
a sysadmin can think a setup is working when it isn't. (This bit me.) I
think it would be better to do the initial load after dropping
privileges so that it is consistent with reloading.
