Installing HBase removes chrony if it is configured

      Description

      HBase Debian packages recommend ntp, which conflicts with chrony. I believe ntp is not actually a dependency of HBase, but recommended simply as a way to prevent clock skew which would adversely affect HBase. Chrony fulfills the recommendation in the same way, so recommending either one is acceptable, and installations should not force the removal of chrony.

        Good one. Also I changed the comma to a pipe, as even though the conflict between the two makes this result in identical behavior as far as I can see, "OR" is what I really mean to say, not "AND".

        Also, I tested that ntp is still preferred if you install HBase and have neither installed, which is probably what we want...
