I'm not aware of any significant impact of this change, but it does come
from the same period of investigation that also generated one of Andres'

Suspend and resume loops in OpenFirmware are a high priority in the
manufacturing tests, but this change should not affect this test.

Perhaps you are conflating the kernel changes with the OpenFirmware
changes.  There is no time drift over suspend, because OpenFirmware does
not maintain a system time.  Displaying the clock is a read of the
external RTC.
