 We are seeing a problem with rtcreset.sig verification when dealing with
 certain dates. The "current RTC time" field in the rtcreset.sig file
 matches what is listed in the rtc-timestamp chosen property, but the
 firmware incorrectly complains that there is a mismatch.

 I have narrowed this down to a bug relating to conversion to/from unix
 timestamps. This demonstrates the issue:

 " 20131209T000350Z" decode-timestamp >unix-seconds unix-seconds>

 The returned date is 8th December 2013 - it should be the 9th, as it was
 in the input.
