Rewind... My custom kernels have RTC_OFFSET=0, just like in GENERIC.
Setting it to non-zero is for the benefit of dual boot Windoze PC's
which can't display the correct time when the real time clock is
*correctly* and *sanely* set to GMT. What I should have said was, you
don't need to set it to anything but zero.
