Alexander Holler - June 6, 2013, 10:51 a.m.
Those config options don't make sense anymore with the new hctosys
mechanism introduced with the previous patch.

That means two things:

- If a (hardware) clock is available it will be used to set the time at
  boot. This was already the case for system which have a "persistent"
  clock, e.g. most x86 systems. The only way to specify the device used
  for hctosys is now by using the kernel parameter hctosys= introduced
  with a previous patch.

- If a hardware clock was used for hctosys before suspend, this clock
  will be used to adjust the clock at resume. Again, this doesn't change
  anything on systems with a "persistent" clock.

What's missing:

I don't know much about those "persistent" clocks and I haven't had a
deep look at them. That's especially true for the suspend/resume
mechanism used by them. The mechanism I want to use is the following:
The RTC subsystem now maintains the ID of the RTC device which was used
for hctosys (in rtc_hctosys_dev_id) and therefor specifies the device
which should be used to adjust the time after resume. Additionaly the
(new) flag systime_was_set will be set to false at suspend and on resume
this flag will be set to true if either the clock will be adjusted by
the device used for hctosys or by userspace (through do_settimeofday()).

That all should already work as expected for RTCs, what's missing for
"persistent" clocks is that the flag systime_was_set is set to false on
suspend and set to true on resume. Currently it just stays at true
(which is set through hctosys if a "persistent" clock is found.
But because "persistent" clocks don't go away (as it is possible with
RTCs by removing the driver or the RTC itself), nor do "persistent"
clocks might have two instances, this shouldn't be a problem at all.
