Subject[PATCH 1/4] RTC: Prevents a division by zero in kernel code.
Date
From: Marcelo Roberto Jimenez <mroberto@cpti.cetuc.puc-rio.br>

This patch prevents a user space program from calling the RTC_IRQP_SET
ioctl with a negative value of frequency. Also, if this call is make
with a zero value of frequency, there would be a division by zero in the
kernel code.

[jstultz: Also initialize irq_freq to 1 to catch other divbyzero issues]
