Since the original change is already applied to tip/timers/core, can
you provide an incremental patch (a patch against tip/timers/core)
that fixes the issue, rather then resending the entire patch?

Also, the "#ifdef CONFIG_RTC_LIB" solution I proposed was sort of a
hack, so I'd hope to see something better.

One better solution would be to add a dummy static inline
implementation of rtc_ktime_to_tm() in include/linux/rtc.h.

ie something like:
#ifdef CONFIG_RTC_LIB
struct rtc_time rtc_ktime_to_tm(ktime_t kt);
#else
static inline rtc_time rtc_ktime_to_tm(ktime_t kt)
{
    struct rt_time ret;
    memset(&ret, 0,  sizeof(struct rt_time));
    return ret;
}
#endif
