The first so many bytes in this space can be either RTC registers
or further bytes of CMOS RAM (to which various vendors have
created various other means of access mechanisms afaik). Hence
the flag set simply means there are no RTC registers there.
Whether CMOS RAM can be accessed through these ports is
unspecified by this flag being either set or clear, aiui (albeit I
think one might imply there is such RAM when the flag is set).
