System: NetBSD 5.99.22 updated around 20091223
Architecture: sparc
Machine: sparc
mainbus0 (root): SUNW,SPARCstation-20
clock0 at obio0 slot 0 offset 0x200000: mk48t08

MI todr(9) routines seem to have some problem at least
on SPARCstation 20 with mk48txx(4) todr clock device.

The kernel hangs if TODR date is >2038 right after mountroot
and even after date is set >2038.

#   [... kernel hangs here]

Reboot machine at this point, then it hangs after mountroot.

Booting netbsd-5 kernel will reset the TODR clock
using file system time, and then it fixes the hangup.

I saw similar hang on mac68k with dead battery
and the problem was resolved after TOD value was corrected.

Unknown. Check all possible 32bit overflow?
