nls_cp437 is some locale setting that you probably enabled in your kernel.
If you don't need/use it, go to kernel config, disable it.

char-major-10-135 refers to the RTC device through /dev/rtc - perhaps you
enabled rtc support in the kernel as a module, but didn't load the module
before running the setclock script. Or /dev/rtc doesn't exist

Well the changelog is the only and best place to go to find out what was
changed since the last version. It quickly explains in which chapter and
section something was updated. You can then judge whether you want to
reinstall the package, or re-create the bootscripts, or whatever. If in
doubt just reinstall any package mentioned in the changelog and you'd be
well on your way keeping it up to date.

If you don't find the format clear then suggest a better format.
