Yes, the counter here may usually start counting at bootloader time from zero.

Here the ktime_get_real() will always return 0, before setting the system clock,
Like:

"rtc-ds3232 1-0068: setting system clock to 2014-06-12 13:01:24 UTC (1402578084)"

And if so, why not just set it to 0 ? And by the way, 0 is must here ?

Thanks,
