The build failure was this one

CC drivers/rtc/rtc-cmos.o
drivers/rtc/rtc-cmos.c: In function cmos_do_probe:
drivers/rtc/rtc-cmos.c:661: error: hpet_rtc_interrupt undeclared (first use in this function)
drivers/rtc/rtc-cmos.c:661: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
drivers/rtc/rtc-cmos.c:661: error: for each function it appears in.)
make[2]: *** [drivers/rtc/rtc-cmos.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [drivers/rtc] Error 2
make: *** [drivers] Error 2

And that happened with Ingo's config above and your patch (copy & pasted) below,

Should already be available via the hpet.h inclusion.

Could go further, by defining the do-nothing stub in hpet.h as well, perhaps.

This is where the
build failure comes
from. My patch fixed it,
but I folded it together
with yours.
It's up to you to decide what to do, if you want two patches or only
one (which is the status quo now).
It was an enlightining experience for me anyway :-)
