Impl. of ACPI RTC/CMOS interface.

FreeBSD base system does not provide an ACPI handler for the PC/AT RTC/CMOS
device with PnP ID PNP0B00; on recent HP Envy laptops, the absence of this
handler causes suspend/resume and poweroff(8) to hang/fail, emitting e.g.

ACPI Error: No handler for Region [RCM0] (0xfffff80005796480) [SystemCMOS]
ACPI Error: Region SystemCMOS (ID=5) has no handler (20150818/exfldio-317)

These HP laptops have BIOSes which attempt to query the RTC date/time registers
via ACPI before suspending/powering off.

ACPI-5.0 specification section 9.15 describes the ACPI interface to the
RTC/CMOS device (atrtc(4) in FreeBSD).

I have implemented this ACPI handler; adding this allows poweroff and
suspend/resume to occur.  At a FreeBSD committer's request, I've also
implemented the same patch with additional changes to atrtc(4) to separate the
bus functionality from the core functionality.
