Ah, I see now, I misremembered this part. The only bit that
is shared on m68k is the mach_hwclk() function that is used
for either read_persistent_clock64() or rtc_generic on platforms
that have one. So any platform could indeed be converted from
mach_hwclk() to a custom rtc driver without affecting the others.
