Well ... you're not.

You've deleted the definition of rtc_fops for no reason I can tell.

You put an unlock_kernel() on every place that invokes break;. You
should instead have put an unlock_kernel() before every return;.

You needed to put a lock_kernel() at the beginning of rtc_ioctl().

You needed to adjust the prototype of rtc_ioctl().

Honestly, if your C skills are as weak as they seem to be, you may be
better off trying to gain experience with some other project -- the
patch you sent appeared to be simple cargo-cult programming, and we
don't need that kind of contribution.

Intel are signing my paycheques ... these opinions are still mine
"Bill, look, we understand that you're interested in selling us this
operating system, but compare it to ours. We can't possibly take such
a retrograde step."
