Description Bill Nottingham 2008-02-01 16:50:32 EST
Description of problem:

Patch attached. This is needed so we can use udev to set the clock on clock
load, as opposed to hardcoding things in rc.sysinit and mkinitrd. (See bug 290731)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a udev rule that runs hwclock
Actual results:

See a bunch of errors about udev_t not being able to do clock-related things.

Expected results:

udev_t automatically transitions to hwclock_t
