This is getting _much_ uglier, but how about:
1) Modify genrtc.c and rtc.c so that they do _not_ initalize on their
2) Create a 'dummy_rtc.c' driver that just tests _machine and calls
rtc.c's init bits on chrp (or just pegasos) and genrtc's bits otherwise.

And again, this is ugly ugly ugly, and I disavow any knowledge of
typing the above.
