Default F15 doesn't believe my hardware clock uses local time

As an aside, there's a Windows hack (changing one of the registry entries) which
allows setting the hardware clock to UTC. Unfortunately, in XP the time may not
be properly restored after suspend/hibernate (which I don't do anyway on my
XP/Fedora desktop so that doesn't affect me). It should work properly without
this issue in Vista SP2 or Windows 7.
