This requires that the time zone database is
installed, usually found in /usr/share/zoneinfo,
/usr/local/etc/zoneinfo or /usr/lib/zoneinfo and
to be able to read the time zone database must the
tzfile.h functionality be included. Time zone
information is found in glibc/timezone and time
zone database can be generated with the time zone
tells more about how to keep accurate date and
time on a Linux system.
Last time I glanced at the hwlock implementation
in busybox it lacked vital functionality. Perhaps
it includes more functionality at the moment and
can be used to keep accurate time and date.
