Just a thought. What priority are you running rtc_wakup at? If you are
doing something like:

schp.sched_priority = sched_get_priority_max(SCHED_FIFO); // which
equates to a priority of 99
Then you it is actually running at a higher priority than the rtc, and
it won't work very well. I tend to run rtc (IRQ 8) at 99 and the
programs accessing it at 98 which seems to work reasonably well.
