I think you would run "hwclock --systz" in that situation (where the 
kernel has set the system clock from the RTC by itself, and you know that 
the RTC stores local time). Of course, you still need to do this before 
fsck runs.

But you can bypass fsck completely by adding "fastboot" to your kernel 
arguments (or maybe "fsck.mode=skip"), or create a file called /fastboot 
or set the sixth field of the relevant /etc/fstab line(s) to 0.
