Nobody in the systemd team is working on WLAN support. That doesn't
mean though that other people might, and we'd certainly consider
merging good patches if we get some. People have certainly asked for
it, so I wouldn't be surprised if some of the embedded folks one day
will provide us with a patch and we'd merge it.

Well, it is news to me that chrony and NM area integrated regarding
the DHCP bits. If they are I'd be curious about the interface they use.
NM dispatcher scripts. NM puts network information (including DHCP
options) into the environment of the scripts, and the script can do
whatever it wants to do with that information.
