ppc -> powerpc : where is 11 min rtc update gone ?

Hi everybody,

I have a ARCH=powerpc linux-2.6.25-rc6 linux running with an i2c rtc chip,
and synchronized to a ntp server.

I noticed that my rtc chip does not get updated by the kernel, just like
it would be on all other architectures (included ppc).

Looking at the differences between ./arch/powerpc/kernel/time.c and
./arch/ppc/kernel/time.c, I see that 

		 * update the rtc when needed ...

code segement has disappeared
Is it expected to be done somewhere else (where ?) or is there another
good reason for this removal ?

Kind regards
