[PATCH 0/2] xen: fix illegal rtc device usage of pv guests

A recent change in mc146818_get_time() resulted in WARN splats when
booting a Xen PV guest.

The main reason is that there is a code path resulting in accessing a
RTC device which is not present, which has been made obvious by a
call of WARN() in this case.

This small series is fixing this issue by:

- avoiding the RTC device access from drivers/base/power/trace.c in
  cast there is no legacy RTC device available
- resetting the availability flag of a legacy RTC device for Xen PV

Juergen Gross (2):
  PM: base: power: don't try to use non-existing RTC for storing data
  xen: reset legacy rtc flag for PV domU
