Summary:                    [PATCH] hwclock must understand /dev/rtc0,
/dev/rtc1, etc
Description: 
For the past year or more, Linux has had an RTC framework supporting
multiple RTCs, conventionally named /dev/rtcN (N starting at zero).

This is widely used on embedded Linuxes, since there are so many
different implementations of RTCs, and systems may need more than
one (e.g. the full featured integrated one may not be battery backed).
The /dev/rtc name is conventionally used only for the RTC on an x86_pc.

The busybox "hwclock" doesn't understand those names, and has no
way to access more than one RTC at a time, even if someone sets up
a symlink from e.g. rtc pointing at rtc0.

wrong project. That's not a buildroot issue but a busybox one.

I cannot change the project this was reported against, so it is unlikely
that Denis will ever see it, fwiw.

Not closing for now.

I have no idea why I couldn't set the project correctly when submitting
this bug ... there was no such option presented, and it was
**AUTOMAGICALLY** assigned to the wrong project (sigh).
