I merged the two patches (gentle, then harsh) so the result is
smaller. Here you go.

========== CUT HERE
Prevent the most significant RTC configuration problems:
- If the new RTC framework is enabled, don't allow any of the
legacy drivers to be configured.

- When using generic RTC on x86, enable rtc-cmos by default.

It seems too many people are used to enabling a legacy RTC despite
the Kconfig help/comments; the gentle approach hasn't worked.

Say "yes" here to get direct support for the real time clock
found in every PC or ACPI-based system, and some other boards.
