    SubjectRe: 2.1.89 rtc.c on alpha and ip forwarding
       AFAICT, CONFIG_RTC on the Alpha seems to make the machine use the
    RTC for its system clock, rather than the original timer. Hence the
    extra RTC functionality isn't available, because the RTC hardware is
    already busy. So it's #ifdef'd out.

    aack. you have it reversed. the original timer was the rtc. CONFIG_RTC
    switches that to the interval timer, making the rtc available for
    /dev/rtc usage. i stuck that in 2.1.x some time ago. just look in
    arch/alpha/time.c for the relevant switch. the patch you applied
    undoes that. fyi, i know that it's worked properly for the udb and
    eb164 at the very least.
