Ugh, and I was so happy to have them removed in 2.4.19 :-(
BTW, they were removed from 2.5.x in 2.5.15 as well.

ChangeSet log was:
| - Kill m68k-specific struct hwclk_time in favor of common struct rtc_time
| - Kill m68k-specific KD[GS]HWCLK ioctls() (the code for them was removed a
| long time ago)

Wouldn't it be better to convert PA-RISC to use struct rtc_time as well?

And the KD[GS]HWCLK ioctl()s are obsolete anyway, use /dev/rtc to access the
hardware clock. On PA-RISC that should be done through genrtc, which I'm in the
process of cleaning up for submission to marcelo.

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,
