SubjectRe: [2.5.63 PATCH][TRIVIAL]Change rtc.c ioport extend from 10h to 8h

[SNIPPED...]

It only needs two bytes port 0x70 and port 0x71 in ix86. Since the Sparc
gets addressed differently and can only read/write words, it needs 8
bytes. Please, if you are going to fix it, please fix it only once by
setting a different length for the different machines!
