Comment(by dsd):

 This is not an error, it is just a warning. The RTC does get set as
 requested immediately after that warning is printed. Admittedly it is
 confusing, I will ask upstream what can be done.

 What happens here is that it first tries to wait for a RTC clock tick,
 before reading the time, and that time is used to calculate/maintain the
 "adjtime" time drift stuff (see hwclock man page).

 In this case we do not care about adjtime so you could just run: hwclock
 --systohc --noadjfile --utc

 That avoids the confusing error (since it causes hwclock just to go
 straight and write the new time), and is the kind of invocation we would
 put in a script.
