It is already asymmetric as hctosys will always happen as soon as the
rtc driver is loaded but systohc will only actually be called only if
ntp is enabled.

I must admit I did consider moving it ou of the rtc subsystem instead of
having it moved in class.c to solve the issue with rtc drivers compiled
as modules but I still carry the nasty BITS_PER_LONG check to keep
systemd happy on a 32bit userspace.
