Comment (by sebastian.huber):

 The wall clock time services lack documentation in general. What is the
 relation between rtems_time_of_day and the UNIX time as specified by IEEE
 Std 1003.1, 2013 Edition, 4.15 Seconds Since the Epoch
 (http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/).  For example
 _TOD_To_seconds() does not use the expression in this standard document.
 This affects rtems_timer_fire_when().
