[ Upstream commit 2a4daadd4d3e507138f8937926e6a4df49c6bfdc ]

Older versions of Libreboot and Coreboot had an invalid value
(`3' in my case) in the century byte affecting the GM45 in
the Thinkpad X200.  Not everybody's updated their firmwares,
and Linux <= 4.2 was able to read the RTC without problems,
so workaround this by ignoring invalid values.

Should it print a warning so that wrong BIOSes are eventually fixed?

Best regards,
