* Revert Ubuntu delta about setting UTC in /etc/default/rcS instead of
/etc/adjtime. (LP: #1541532)
* debian/control: Add Breaks: systemd (<< 228-5ubuntu3) to initscripts to
ensure that we upgrade systemd before, so that this can migrate the UTC
setting. (This used to be done by util-linux, but having it in systemd is
a smaller delta.)
