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.
