I wonder if you can plug into the ntp code somehow to do this
automatically?

Sounds like a simplified version of ntp to me.

Why not use NTP?

Is it necessary to change the rtc interface? Can't you detect within
your m48t59 driver that you are getting consistent time adjustments up
or down from whats in the rtc and infer it needs speeding up or slowing
down?

Something like :
within the *_get_time function compute time delta, if 0<delta<Magic#
then slow down; else if -Magic#<delta<0 then speed up... (some magic
based on update interval and device spec)
