Is every application that uses /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq
supposed to be updated to use the new /sys interface?

IMHO the default should be increased to 1024 - the current default of
64 dates back to the 486 era.  This would eliminate the need for a lot
of apps to touch it at all.

Unprivileged users have lots of other ways to generate more than 1024
interrupts/second anyway.
