Subject[PATCH] NTP: Add a CONFIG_RTC_SYSTOHC configuration
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.

The option also overrides the call to any platform update_persistent_clock
so that the RTC subsystem completely and generically replaces this
functionality.

Tested on ARM kirkwood and PPC405

I saw on Google an older version of a similar patch to this, but I
couldn't find any indication what happened to it. So here is a
slightly different take, tested on 3.7.

I've been running basically this idea buried in PPC platform specific
code since 2.6.16..
