FS#12472 - Permanent time settings menu

The current Settings > Time & Date menu contains items that can operate without a RTC.

The problem is that this menu only exists when the device has a RTC, otherwise the remaining items (currently sleep timer related) are shifted into the root settings menu.

This patch creates a new permanent Time Settings menu which holds these and other time related items. The existing Time & Date menu becomes a sub menu of it (on RTC targets), with most of it’s items stripped out.

Not much interest in this menu layout

The patch is currently pretty raw, I’ll work on updating it and the manual if there’s interest.

I don’t tihnk this patch is a good idea. The 3 settings left on non-rtc targets (2x sleep timer, 1x idle poweroff) have absolutely nothing to do with “time settings” and would become unobvious and possibly lost there. Admittedly t&d arn’t right for these also.

Of course, we could do this but have the lang string different on non-rtc targets, but doesn’t that negate much of the point of the patch? (and call it what? startup/shutdown options?)

I agree.

The real point of the patch is a permanent home for non RTC settings.

Unfortunately fixing this invariably grinds to a halt due to the finer points of semantics.
