This SRU has gone 49 days without verification, and at this point looks
like it will miss the window for 16.04.4. Will someone from the Snappy
team be verifying this so that it can be included in future core snaps
and ubuntu-core images?

* this will be tested by the snappy team
* without this fix the dragonboard will not boot on a freshly written image
* low as it only fixes an invalid string
trying to boot a new dragonboard image results in:
error: assertion is signed with expired public key
this is due to a clock skew that should normally be catched by the
fixrtc script in the initrd.
the script is supposed to check the last mount time of the writable
disk (SD card) and if this does not exist, fall back to the filesystem
creation time ...
in former versions of mkfs.ext4 the last mount time filed was simply
left empty, so this fallback worked fine ... in xenial the fields now
Filesystem created: Tue Sep 13 17:32:20 2016
Last mount time: n/a
Last write time: Tue Sep 13 17:32:20 2016
due to the script running with "set -e" it falls over on the "n/a" and
exists before falling back to creation time, there needs to be a check
added for the "n/a" string now.
