Looking at the message once more now I see that res=success, however the message
is anoying anyway.
Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2006-11-06 10:37:17 EST
This is an audit message and believe it or not this has nothing to do with
SELinux.  Every time the hardware clock is changes the kernel generates an audit
message stating this.  If you do not have audit running at the time the message
is generated, it goes to syslog.

So if you want to complain, complain to the audit package. :^(
