Thanks for the hint, Ralf, but I'm afraid the RTC is working well. I
simply forgot to take care of the fact that the DEC engineers in their
infinite wisdom decided to use the Dallas clock chip as a TOY (Time Of
Year) clock. The year register contains either 70 or 71 and putting
other values in there will result in a self test failure at power up,
and the register will be reset to 70 or 71. In this particular case the
kernel mounts a file system which will be created 27 years in the
future. If I were the kernel, I'd be confused as well :-).

Sounds good, I'll try that asap.
