I was thinking about modifying drivers/char/rtc.c. Making this usable
would have meant to throw all the interrupt stuff and 95% of the code out,
rendering a full featured device driver pretty useless. Currently I am
thinking a nice /proc interface would be cool. Something like
>date > /proc/rtc
or so. Opinions on this? Even volunteers?
