run hwclock stop only at shutdown, but set system clock to latest(rtc, 
hwclock stored time + delta, /var/log/syslog + delta) at boot?

I am aware that not everybody has /var/log/syslog in heavily customized 
installs, but if it's there, it's usually occasionally written to. And using 
that is certainly faster than "find most recently modified file on all 
filesystems" :-)
