Is there anything that uses other than 1968 as base year? If not this could be the default in the device so you don't need these set prop calls here and in sun machines.

The only other place this device is used seems to be ppc/prep machine that uses the isa version but does not set a base year. Is that a bug? The original prep machine removed in b2ce76a0730 used 2000 but that's unlikely as well as these machines predate that.


This is quite interesting, since if you look at prep.c you see that the machine has both a MC146818 RTC and a M48T59 RTC, and the NVRAM variables are stored in the M48T59. My guess is that a real 40p has a MC146818, but OHW only supported M48T59 and so it was only ever used to pass data from QEMU to OHW - the OS would use MC146818 for the clock which has the base year set correctly.

Anyway, the sysbus and isa versions are different

They shouldn't, it is the same chipset, wired differently.

so their default base-year could be set independently and then boards won't need to set this propery and may be could use qdev_create_simple instead or whatever that was renamed to.


Preferably following Zoltan's suggestion:

There is certainly some more untangling to be done here, but given my current backlog it is something that will need to wait until after 5.2.
