Right, if RTC_DRV_DS1307 is defined but RTC_DRV_DS1307_CENTURY is not
then variable chip isn't used in ds1307_get_time.
We could fix this by simply defining variable chip only if
RTC_DRV_DS1307_CENTURY is defined.

However the current situation leaves the question why
RTC_DRV_DS1307_CENTURY isn't set in the ppc64 defconfig.
This config option should be n only temporarily if a system has
to be fixed, see description of this option.
Maybe we should set this config option to "default y" ?
