Subject[ 147/149] rtc: Provide flag for rtc devices that dont support UIE
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: John Stultz <john.stultz@linaro.org>

commit 4a649903f91232d02284d53724b0a45728111767 upstream.

Richard Weinberger noticed that on some RTC hardware that
doesn't support UIE mode, due to coarse granular alarms
(like 1minute resolution), the current virtualized RTC
support doesn't properly error out when UIE is enabled.

Instead the current code queues an alarm for the next second,
but it won't fire until up to a miniute later.

This patch provides a generic way to flag this sort of hardware
and fixes the issue on the mpc5121 where Richard noticed the
problem.
