  It seems that some i386 mothermoards either do not implement the
  day of week field correctly, or they remember bad values that are
  written into the day of week field. For this reason, ignore the day
  of week field when reading the clock on i386 rather than bailing if
  it is set incorrectly.
  Problems were seen on a number of platforms, including VMWare, qemu,
  EPIA ME6000, Epox-3PTA and ABIT-SL30T.
  This is a slightly different fix to that proposed by Ted in his PR,
  but the same basic idea.
