As I say, d-i's detecting the hang properly and doing almost the right thing;
my only suggestion would be to turn off HWCLOCKACCESS when a hang is detected
to prevent future hangs on boot.  Fixing hwclock would be a better workaround,
so I'm fine if you want to close this one or downgrade/reassign.

The most plausible root cause for the issue I've heard is that the clock needs
software intervention to start, which the vendor firmware does but our own
kernels don't.

Clean install otherwise.  Nice job on all that.
