Here is an example from 2.6.34-rc6 :
.config - Linux Kernel v2.6.23-rc6 Configuration
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+------------------------- Provide RTC interrupt -------------------------+
| There is no help available for this kernel option. |
| Symbol: HPET_EMULATE_RTC [=y] |
| Prompt: Provide RTC interrupt |
| Defined at arch/x86_64/Kconfig:471 |
| Depends on: HPET_TIMER && RTC=y |
| Location: |
| -> Processor type and features |
Regards,
Paul
