Ah look at that.. x86 using device tree. Wasn't aware.

Indeed, this would clean up the add_rtc_cmos() path more and make
the semantics required for this a platform specific quirk which can
instead more easily be set by the platform on the generic:


Will go a head and remove this hack as part of the CE4100 patch, and
also add CE4100 to the list of subarchs that need the RTC quirk.
