ok, will try that. A stupid question. The old RTC driver is in
drivers/char/rtc.c, and maps to:

crw-r--r-- 1 root root 10, 135 Oct 25 18:02 /dev/rtc

the new driver is in drivers/rtc/*, and maps to:

crw-r--r-- 1 root root 254, 0 Dec 12 02:30 /dev/rtc0

but all the x86 distro boxes i have access to make use of /dev/rtc.
There's no symlink set up from /dev/rtc to /dev/rtc0 either. So it
appears to me that the new RTC driver isnt actually utilized on most

shouldnt we provide a Kconfig way of replacing dev 10:135 with the new
driver's 254:0 device? (while keeping all the current modes of operation
as well, of course.) It's all supposed to be 100% ioctl ABI compatible
with the old driver, right? That way distros could start migrating to it
as well, without depending on any udev hackery.

yeah, i wouldnt expect graphics mode to come back without quirks. But it
should still work fine over the network, right? (which is my main mode
of testing anyway)
