John's original patch forcefully disabled CONFIG_RTC_SYSTOHC on x86,
which is quite the opposite of what you recommend here. :)
Could you guys both sort that out and give an idea what the
recommended setup should look like today, ignoring all space saving
and possible hctosys API changes caused by this. Should
CONFIG_RTC_SYSTOHC be enabled or not?
