[Xen-users] Setting kernel time zone in domU?

Earlier, I wrote:

Well, almost.  Two problems remain:

(1) The startup of a domU stalls for about three minutes, apparently
    in the /etc/rcS.d/S11hwclock.sh script.  I can get rid of this
    delay by making /sbin/hwclock non-executable (chmod 000).

(2) My local time zone is not being set during startup -- the system
    thinks it should use UTC.  "hwclock --hctosys" is supposed to set
    the kernel's timezone value, but that isn't happening because I
    set HWCLOCKACCESS=no, bypassing the "hwclock" calls in hwclock.sh.

Any suggestions for setting the kernel's timezone value to the local
timezone in a domU without running "hwclock --hctosys"?
