"coreutil-date" package from the packages feed replaces the Busybox date
applet by symlinking /usr/bin/gnu-date to /bin/date. This prevents the system
init script from setting kernel timezone because the GNU date utility does not
provide such functionality:

   root@OpenWrt:~# date -k
   date: invalid option -- 'k'
   Try 'date --help' for more information.

A specific reference to the Busybox date applet prevents alternative date
utilities from breaking the system init script.
