Well, check yourself.

What's, for example, the result of "grep RTC include/configs/EBONY.h" ?

So yes, it probably uses the RTC on this board.  So  for  your  board
configuration  you would not #define CONFIG_RTC_DS174x. You will then
probably get some errors from the "date" command implementation.  You
will  then  probably  have to remove the CFG_CMD_DATE definition form
your command configuration.

That's all. Isn't it easy?

Best regards,
