 Testing a XO-1.5 with q3c13:

  1. Shut down, remove all power sources
  2. Remove RTC battery for about a minute, then reconnect again
  3. Boot. Firmware reports year 6500, and boots into the activation
 initramfs on the basis that the lease expired back in the year 2013 :)

 Expected behaviour was the clock to be reset to a sane past value and for
 the system to boot into the normal runos/runrd environment.
