SubjectRe: [patch 2.6.18-rc3] RTC class, Kconfig improvements
Date
[ RESEND against RC4, plus added RTC_DEBUG option ]

Small updates to make the RTC class Kconfig text be more informative.
This should help folk used to the drivers/char/rtc.c support, or a
single RTC, be slightly less surprised by the differences.

Also, adds a new RTC_DEBUG option to predefine DEBUG in the framework
and its drivers, while debugging.
