Subject[PATCH 3.12 119/142] rtc: s35390a: make sure all members in the output are set
Date
From: Uwe Kleine-König <uwe@kleine-koenig.org>

3.12-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

===============

The rtc core calls the .read_alarm with all fields initialized to 0. As
the s35390a driver doesn't touch some fields the returned date is
interpreted as a date in January 1900. So make sure all fields are set
to -1; some of them are then overwritten with the right data depending
on the hardware state.

In mainline this is done by commit d68778b80dd7 ("rtc: initialize output
parameter for read alarm to "uninitialized"") in the core. This is
considered to dangerous for stable as it might have side effects for
other rtc drivers that might for example rely on alarm->time.tm_sec
being initialized to 0.
