The DECstation RTC driver has the following lines of code

[...]
        } else if (year >= 70 && year <= 72) {
                epoch = 1928;
                guess = "Digital DECstation";
[...]

around line 676.  This means that only two the years 1998 to 2000 will be
recognized for the `Digital DECstation Epoch'.  Looks broken to me.  I
tried to fix it but don't know the secrets of DECstation RTC timekeeping so
could a DECstation guru look at it?
