Oh no, don't tell me we now have (at least) _three_ of these floating around
- On m68k, we have drivers/char/genrtc.c (not yet merged, check out CVS, see
- On PPC, we have drivers/macintosh/rtc.c.
- On MIPS, we now have your drivers/char/mips_rtc.c.

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
