I'm in favor of option 3, but I thought I'd ask first. I think this problem would apply to any board. The reason we haven't seen it before is that most folks are running linux bios on boards that once had a standard bios. The standard bios has already 'activated' the RTC updates.
how about in a new file pc80/rtc.c. That is where legacy pc files are. In the rtc.c file you can set up the code to do this. We'll make its inclusion conditional on a config variable.
