[I have sent the same message to LKML yesterday, with no answer.]


At shutdown, kernel 2.6.14-rc2 saves the wrong value in the hardware
clock, since at next bootup I get 21 August 1987.

I have narrowed the range down to:
   2.6.14-rc1 is good
   2.6.14-rc1-git1 is bad.

Also, the 2.6.14-rcX does not power off the machine at shutdown.
2.6.13 did work fine.
