Ahhhh, I wasn't aware of that (offsets in usec.), that helps. I do have a
DS3231 clock chip on my RPiB+, although someone else mentioned that it is
not (yet) supported. Does NetBSD-7 write system time to whatever saves time
on the mbd on poweroff ? It seems that when I have a power burp that gets
the RPi, it comes back up w/ pretty good time right away, even w/ no
internet available ....
How different is the protocol to the DS1307?  I have my DS1307 talking
to NetBSD by creating a config file RPI_RTC:

include "arch/evbarm/conf/RPI"

no options      MODULAR

dsrtc* at iic1 addr 0x68

options         USBVERBOSE      # verbose USB device autoconfig messages

I'm not sure about the differences, I am new to NetBSD, & absolute unknown to kernel hacking. Someone posted in earlier thread, when I was initially trying to get up & running, that the DS3231 was not supported, that's what I was going on. What is the name of this config file & where does it go, /etc ? I will be happy to try this if feasible :-) ....
