Subject: [PATCH] drivers/rtc/interface.c: check the validation of rtc_time in

Some of rtc devices always return '0' when rtc_class_ops.read_time is called.
So if rtc_time isn't verified in callback, rtc interface cannot know whether
rtc_time is valid.

Check rtc_time by using 'rtc_valid_tm' in '__rtc_read_time'. And add the
message for debugging.
