SubjectRe: Help with rtc to hpet conversion of OSGPS driver
Maybe I'm way off here, but that seems to be the function to register a 
RTC hardware chip with the kernel. I want to use a real-time clock
interrupt to wake up my driver and service the GPS correlator, about
every 500ms. Please let me know if I'm misunderstanding.
