Subject[PATCH] RTC: Add mmap method to rtc character driver
Hey-
At OLS last week, During Dave Jones Userspace Sucks presentation, Jim
Geddys and some of the Xorg guys noted that they would be able to stop using gettimeofday
so frequently, if they had some other way to get a millisecond resolution timer
in userspace, one that they could perhaps read from a memory mapped page. I was
right behind them and though that seemed like a reasonable request, so I've
taken a stab at it. This patch allows for a page to be mmaped from /dev/rtc
character interface, the first 4 bytes of which provide a regularly increasing
count, once every rtc interrupt. The frequency is of course controlled by the
regular ioctls provided by the rtc driver. I've done some basic testing on it,
and it seems to work well.

Thanks And Regards
Neil
