Ahh, OK.  I'll take a look at this.  I thought it used to work in
older kernels.  It's on my list (or if someone else wants to take
a look and send a patch ...... :-).

As I recall, there are events that occur to update the RTC from
the kernel's notion of time, and one used to be some timeout.  Perhaps
after you set the time, if you wait for a while it may update the RTC.
