    Subject[patch 2.6.19-rc6 0/6] more rtc framework/driver updates
    Here are more RTC framework updates, basically for the 2.6.20 queue:

    - /proc/driver/rtc update ... display the 'struct rtc_wkalrm' status
    bits more sensibly (though the EFI "irq pending" flag is nonsense
    with an OS running)

    - rtc-sa1100 update ... wasn't reporting "alarm enabled", and its
    extra procfs info duplicated information already found there

    - X86_PC updates ... create an rtc_cmos platform device when PNPACPI
    isn't available do make one through PNP. (Non-PC platforms can do
    similar things if they have a "cmos" RTC.)

    - Export ACPI RTC extensions through platform_data to the PNP device
    or the platform device, as appropriate.

    - New "rtc-cmos" driver, for the RTC on most PCs. For most folk this
    seems like it should be able to replace drivers/char/rtc.c ...

    - Newish "rtc-omap" driver, for the RTC on OMAP1 processors. No point
    in having this just live in the OMAP tree.

    Folk wanting to try "rtc-cmos" will likely be wanting to tweak their
    /dev/rtc node to become a symlink to /dev/rtc0, at least until the
    new version of util-linux comes out (with updated "hwclock" knowing
    about the new RTC class devices).
