The main problem is that hwclock has to know the facts of the configured
system timezone. Otherwise it is not possible to get the correct offset
of the local time to UTF reference. AFAIK this should be done by writing
the compiled zoneinfo to /etc/localtime ... or /etc/localtime is simply a
copy of one of the precomplied zoneinfo files found in /usr/share/zoneinfo/

At least the configured timezone should be available in such a form
(no symbolic link) to get the correct timezone facts before /usr is mounted.
