Yeah. Simplifying probably helps for consistency and maintainability.
(on top of the rtc and persistent clock, we also have the nonstop
clocksources that keep running through suspend and can be used. :)

It's just that window after resume but before the sleep time injection
where time would be incorrect always made me uncomfortable, so it was
nice to have some correct way to avoid that, even if all hardware
couldn't utilize it. But as I'm less involved here, maybe someone
else can simplify things and live with that worry. :)
