If you are talking about the hwclock stuff, it is wrong and a bug that
need to be fixed in util-linux (#520607).  The problem is not fatal -
one call will succeed and another will fail.  One is sufficient.  If
you are talking about anything else, I do not understand what you are
talking about.  What seem wrong about this?  Why should bootlogd start
before hwclock*?

Happy hacking,
