I just committed the following patch.  If it's incorrect then please
let me know.

--- rcS.5       (revision 694)

 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).
 (POSIX systems keep a variant of UTC, without leap seconds.)

+If UTC is set to \fBno\fP then \fI/usr/share/zoneinfo\fP
+must be readable early in the boot process.
+If you want to keep \fI/usr\fP on a separate filesystem then
+you must still ensure that the target of \fI/etc/localtime\fP
+points to the correct zone information file for the time zone
+of the time kept in your hardware real time clock.
 Setting this option to \fBno\fP (in lower case) will make the boot process
 a bit less verbose.
