Ah, no, it's because the ioports for the rtc-cmos driver are already
claimed by the old driver from CONFIG_RTC. The following configuration
is valid in Kconfig:


but will disable /proc/acpi/wakeup. It'll also be impossible to load
CONFIG_RTC_CMOS because CONFIG_RTC has grabbed the io ports, so it's not
possible to use the new interface. This situation doesn't appear to be
documented, which is less than ideal...
