I wouldn't change that, the /proc interface to rtc is old
and should not be used anyhow. Here I'm trying to mimic
the behaviour of the original one.

sysfs provides a much better interface
(once we'll have all the attributes exported, of course :) )

I don't know if there's any user space tool relying on this.
If yes, then it should be fixed.

Any thoughts?
