Wow, what a fantastic bug!  So, IIUC, it will only strike someone who
upgraded in January from a kernel without Werner's change, to one with
Werner's change - because the old kernel will have left a 0 value in

Amazing :-)  Great investigation too.  I'm really pleased that this is
understood now and is going to be fixed.

What about the attached patch to ease transition, and to get a working
RTC before February?
