You will need to enable synching of the hw clock to the system time on
# Set CLOCK to "UTC" if your system clock is set to UTC (also known as
# Greenwich Mean Time). If your clock is set to the local time, then
# set CLOCK to "local".
# If you wish to pass any other arguments to hwclock during bootup,
# you may do so here.
# If you want to set the Hardware Clock to the current System Time
# during shutdown, then say "yes" here.
### ALPHA SPECIFIC OPTIONS ###
# If your alpha uses the SRM console, set this to "yes".
# If your alpha uses the ARC console, set this to "yes".
