This bug is still present in Jaunty powerpc. Now the workaround (adding
the rtc driver module to /etc/modules) does not seem to work since
hwclock.sh is called before the modules in /etc/modules are loaded.

This is the output from hwclock --debug:
hwclock from util-linux-ng 2.14
hwclock: Open of /dev/rtc failed, errno=2: No such file or directory.
No usable clock interface found.
Cannot access the Hardware Clock via any known method.

The computer is an iMac G3 slot-loading.

hwclock.sh needs /dev/rtc
