AFAIK those options still don’t work with RTCs set to local time, do
they? Which, sadly, are required by anyone who dual-boots with a certain
other OS made by Microsoft? So hwclock will still be needed for many
people—perhaps kernel support should be the default, but a painless
migration path for those who need to keep using hwclock would be
appropriate (if any migration is even needed—I’m unclear on whether
hwclock would be removed from the boot runlevel on existing installs or
only not added on new installs).
