    RTC: Add a routine to check if the CMOS date is valid
    If the CMOS is cleared or someone writes some random date/time
    on purpose, the CMOS date register has a invalid date. This will
    hurts some OS, like Windows 7, which hangs at MS logo forever.
    When we detect that, we need to write a reasonable date in CMOS.
    Alexandru Gagniuc:
    Hmm, it would be interesting to use the date the coreboot image
    was built and set that as the default date. At least until time
    travel is invented.
