Default Call for testing: hwclock changes

Hi folks,

I've been making some changes to the hardware/system clock setting code,
I would appreciate some testing to make sure that no new bugs are
introduced - and hopefully that a couple of old ones may vanish.

To test, install the util-linux package from my PPA:

https://launchpad.net/~scott/+archive/ppa

Thanks,

Scott

Anything in particular we should test? Or just of the "install and watch
out for bugs" variety?

Packages should now be available, the version you want is
2.14.2-1ubuntu4~keybuk1.

Sorry for the delay, as those following Planet Ubuntu may know, I've
been having a few problems with GIT <g>

I've installed it and my system hasn't caught on fire yet. (I also have
my system clock set in UTC like any sensible person, and haven't rebooted,
so it's not much of a test so far.)

Should /etc/init.d/hwclock.sh be stripped down to be a no-op on 'start',
since there's no longer any reason to call it with this argument?

I left this there for maximum Debian compatibility - LaMont likes as
small a delta as possible, and it means it's trivial to put back if
people have a genuine use-case for it.

So these changes aren't intended to be pushed back to Debian, or aren't
expected to be acceptable? Is this because there's still an expectation
that udev is not required?

That's up to the Debian maintainer (LaMont).

The hwclock patch itself, I'm just going to submit upstream.
