Always building drivers/rtc/utils.o even if no RTC support is enabled
seems to be a workaround for an issue that should instead be fixed

The code in e.g. fs/udf/udftime.c or drivers/scsi/ips.c has some
overlaps with what you are adding (they are not doing exactly the
same, but there are overlaps).

We should have one common set of defines/inlines/functions dealing with
all these time conversion, leap year, length of months/years etc. issues
instead of adding one more implementation in this area.
