I think this is already done.
Problem was that rtc driver was leaving the RTC_AIE, thus breaking the
initialization.

If there are no users of hpet on suspend, (periodic,alarm,update), then
it won't be initialized on resume (only rtc comparator part, other parts
are initialized correctly nowadays) but as soon as anybody start using
it, it will be.

This shouldn't break anything. hpet irqs aren't used for the actual
alarm.

In fact I used a script to loop over real hibernation cycles, and it
works with or without this patch.

But with this patch, hwclock works after a resume.
