Should this driver have a "depends on I2C" in Kconfig?

Please try to make local arrays such as the above "static const".
Because the above code can needlessly cause the kernel to assemble and
evaluate the array on the stack each time this function is called.

"buf" wasn't a very good choice of name. Is there something more
descriptive whcih we can use?

This comment seems to imply that the driver allows hwclock to set the
time to something which we know is incorrect? If so, wouldn't it be
better to leave the time at something obviously wrong, such as 1 Jan
1970?
