I have prepared the necessary updates to src:sysvinit to incorporate the hwclock
machinery in initscripts. Specifically the files


Obviously we need to coordinate the transition and I will add Breaks/Replaces
<< the util-linux-extra version which drops the files.

If util-linux-extra were to use it, my understanding is that rm_conffile only
removes *unmodified* conffiles so user modifications should be preserved. But we
might consider synchronised uploads to experimental to test and confirm.

Best wishes
