Yup on investigatiion it looks like moving it inside the "if (fist)" is

Well no I haven't.  AFAICT without my patch read_persistent_clock() is a
weak symbol that always returns 0.  So any platform that doesn't have a
ppc_md.get_boot_time() or ppc_md.get_rtc_time() will still get a 0 at
all the call sites.

I'll locate a machine and verify I'm not making things worse.

Yours Tony
