Jason Gunthorpe - Dec. 17, 2012, 9:30 p.m.
The purpose of this option is to allow ARM/etc systems that rely on the
class RTC subsystem to have the same kind of automatic NTP based
synchronization that we have on PC platforms. Today ARM does not
implement update_persistent_clock and makes extensive use of the class
RTC system.

When enabled CONFIG_RTC_SYSTOHC will provide a generic
rtc_update_persistent_clock that stores the current time in the RTC and
is intended complement the existing CONFIG_RTC_HCTOSYS option that loads
the RTC at boot.

Like with RTC_HCTOSYS the platform's update_persistent_clock is used
first, if it works. Platforms with mixed class RTC and non-RTC drivers
need to return ENODEV when class RTC should be used. Such an update for
PPC is included in this patch.

Long term, implementations of update_persistent_clock should migrate to
proper class RTC drivers and use CONFIG_RTC_SYSTOHC instead.

Tested on ARM kirkwood and PPC405

 create mode 100644 drivers/rtc/systohc.c

v3 changes:
- Test menuconfig, reorder options to look better, fix kconfig
  RTC_HCTOSYS_DEVICE to be 'or' not 'and'
- Change the function name to rtc_set_ntp_time to avoid confusing
  this api with the distinct *_persistant_clock stuff
- Fix typo in the ENODEV test to be || not &&
- Fully retest on ARM+PPC
