XO-1.75 B1 had an RTC power down hardware defect
the effect is to lose the time over a power cycle, which includes an
operating system reboot.
It might also be intermittent and temperature dependent.
So that you don't report this unnecessarily in future, please mark Clyde
as having a forgetful RTC, which will impact:
- Moon, unless Gary chooses to fix it,
- preservation of date and time over reboot,
- the RTC diagnostic test in OpenFirmware.
Is fixed for C1.
