Comment(by pgf):

 so anyone that sets the data using ntp, then uses "hwclock --systohc" to
 tuck it away will need to add "--rtc=/dev/rtc1" to their commandline.

 hmm.  it seems that hwclock actually tries "/dev/rtc" before trying
 "/dev/rtc0".  i think "ln -s /dev/rtc1 /dev/rtc" would make userlevel
