Even if we have to lose or gain a few seconds (preferrably gain) at each
OS change, and even miss some carry, it's much better than resetting to epoch.

Oh, even if we don't restore things and just let WinCE reboot from scratch,
restoring contrast/brightness means we don't have to remove the backup
batteries and/or spend extra time in WinCE menus at each reboot.

OR, implement the "bootstrap to a new zImage" in Linux (rather, steal it
from an existing Linux-as-bootloader project), and implement a
"WinCE restorer" pseudo-zImage.
