the SNI part is broken and can't work that way.

1. SNI used two different RTC chips (ds126 and mc146818) and it's no big
   deal support them in just one kernel with the current framework 
2. One line of SNI machines (a20r) can't use the cp0 counter, so it's not
   a really good idea to calibrate it
