Hum, you are actually not allowing them in the code below (which I think
is the right thing to do).

Is that really true? I would expect the opposite. If it is currently
28/02, the max date you can actually go to is 27/02. If you allow 29/02,
at some time the RTC will have 28/02 and the alarm will fire.

Actually, this is wrong.

If it is currently 1:23:45 on 22/09, you can go up to 1:23:44 on 22/10.
trying to set a time after 1:23:45 will actually match on the same day
instead of a month later.

Ditto, 1:23:45 on 22/09/2016 can go up to 1:23:44 on 22/09/2017.
