Suggested time of removal: one year after two relevant software
package releases get updated:

- NTPD, to call hwclock specifying the relevant RTC;
- util-linux, updating hwclock to know about /dev/rtcN;
- busybox, with its own hwclock implementation.

The util-linux hwclock update is already in the queue, I'm told.
