Bingo! Nice catch. I was on the wrong track because we have an early
boot quirk handling for the DA on this platform and I was searching
there for side effects. Makes all sense now. Thanks a lot for your help!

I understand. That explains why my RTC knowledge from a few years ago
feels so outdated :)

Please use this address:

And probably Geert wants his "+renesas" address, too:

I think we should have a comment here, like:

/* FIXME: Make use of the TICK interrupt once the RTC core supports it */

So, this helps the UIE test:

Reviewed-by: Wolfram Sang <wsa+renesas@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Tested-by: Wolfram Sang <wsa+renesas@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

And I guess we have to live with two of the alarm tests failing because
of the minute granularity?
