[U-Boot-Users] "date reset" for MPC8xx

I think would should realy reset the MPC8xx's internal RTC when
calling "date reset" or "rtc_reset" instead of "nothing to do".
Please find and consider the attached patch.
I have seen it several times, that the MPC8xx's internal RTC contains
an invalid date, e.g. negative times (caused by no or low battery).
That might result in dates before 1970-01-01 under Linux and that in
turn confuses timeouts.
I've seen that udhcpc (from busybox) hangs in such cases!
For that reason u-boot should check for valid dates and do a
rtc_reset() if nessesary.
* Patch by Steven Scholz, 14 Apr 2003:
- reset_rtc() sets MPC8xx internal RTC back to 1970-01-01
