This option is useful for all of the X86 subarchs afaik (and especially X86_GENERICARCH).

You're right ... _potentially_ useful, which is the same standard used
in most of the other cases.  The "X86_PC" is debris from an early version
of this patch, which limited the code to cases where it was known to work.
The X86_PC hardware standard does standardize on this particular RTC, but
non-PC platforms can use it too.

I still need to resubmit the patch, for X86_PC, which defines the platform
device in the (common) case where PNPACPI isn't defined.  Other X86 boards
would need something similar, based on what chips are wired to the CPU.

CONFIG_PNPACPI=y is not the common case?

It's certainly not in the defconfig for x86-64.  And it's only been
three weeks since the CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL dependency got removed.

So, no I would not think it's the common case.

Turns out that it is common.
It is in i386 defconfig, ships on i386 Fedora Core 6,  ships on i386 OpenSuse 10.2.

For x86_64 it isn't in defconfig or OpenSuse 10.2, but is in Fedora Core 6.

So I've taken Andi's advice and checked in the patches below.
(I didn't bother updating defconfig, it will generate according to this rule
and I don't want to conflict with any re-generation andi might be checking in)

thanks,

    ACPI: always enable CONFIG_PNPACPI on CONFIG_ACPI kernels
    
    We removed the ACPI motherboard driver which handled
    the ACPI=y, PNP=n case, so now we need to enforce that
    PNP & PNPACPI are always enabled for ACPI kernels.
    
    Most major distros ship this way this already.

OK; that simplifies things for me, good!  I can discard that patch
(broken by Andi's pcspkr change anyway), stop worring about whether
most folk will even see that driver, and make time to look at the
ACPI hooks for RTC wakeup, instead.  :)


But it would be nice to see the PNP bus infrastructure upgraded in
various ways too, now that its availability is less iffy.

 - Add something analagous to platform_driver_probe() so that the
   init code can be removed after it runs.

 - Add shutdown() calls to the PNP bus.  Otherwise e.g. one must
   use shutdown notifiers for PNP interfaces, while normal driver
   model code works for other interfaces to such hardware.

Transitioning from "legacy" drivers to PNP (for PCs) and platform_bus
(other platforms) is a bit awkward because of differences like those.
Drivers still need too many different modes; it's too complicated to
have a core with different bus glues as thin veneers ... the glue must
be thicker (and thus error prone).  Similarly, I/O space resource
reservation acts differently.

I can hope that having PNPACPI be more common will start nudging
more drivers to get rid of their "legacy" modes, or at least focus
on "Real Driver" modes that don't involve poking at hardware and
hoping it doesn't bite back.  ;)

Which, by the way, means that folk with pre-ACPI systems aren't
going to be able to use this driver until someone else provides
an updated patch creating an "rtc_cmos" platform device.

Or on the more modern end of things ... I suspect PCs using
Linux-BIOS won't do PNPACPI either, and they will also need
that platform device before using this driver.

What do the MiniMac systems do?  At one time I thought they
were ACPI-free.
