Not arguing against this patch but OOI how important is it to emulate
this behaviour to this level of accuracy? On real hardware the UIP tells
you that the data may not be valid/consistent but I don't think the
emulated RTC has that property (does it?). Do guest OSes rely on seeing
the UIP bit occasionally or have you seen a specific issue which caused
you to make this change?
