* Documentation: rtc: Correct location of rtctest.cJoel Stanley2019-03-251-1/+1
| | | | | | | | The useful little rtctest program moved location a while back. Fixes: a12ab9e125f1 ("selftests: move RTC tests to rtc subfolder") Signed-off-by: Joel Stanley <joel@jms.id.au> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>

* rtc: add generic nvmem supportAlexandre Belloni2017-07-071-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | Many RTCs have an on board non volatile storage. It can be battery backed RAM or an EEPROM. Use the nvmem subsystem to export it to both userspace and in-kernel consumers. This stays compatible with the previous (non documented) ABI that was using /sys/class/rtc/rtcx/device/nvram to export that memory. But will warn about the deprecation.

* rtc.txt: standardize document formatMauro Carvalho Chehab2017-05-311-21/+23
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Each text file under Documentation follows a different format. Some doesn't even have titles! Change its representation to follow the adopted standard, using ReST markups for it to be parseable by Sphinx: - adjust identation of the titles; - mark a table as such; - don't capitalize chapter names.

* Documentation, split up rtc.txt into documentation and test filePrarit Bhargava2015-03-251-263/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch splits rtc.txt into two separate files, one for the documentation itself, and the other for the rtctest.c file. The rtctest file is moved into the kernel tools/testing/selftests/timers directory. This will make automated testing easier. Note that the only difference in the rtc.txt file is that the location of the rtctest.c file has changed.

* rtc: add ability to push out an existing wakealarm using sysfsBernie Thompson2013-07-031-3/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This adds the ability for the rtc sysfs code to handle += characters at the beginning of a wakealarm setting string. This will allow the user to attempt to push out an existing wakealarm by a provided amount. In the case that the += characters are provided but the alarm is not active -EINVAL is returned. his is useful, at least for my purposes in suspend/resume testing. The basic test goes something like: 1. Set a wake alarm from userspace 5 seconds in the future 2. Start the suspend process (echo mem > /sys/power/state) 3. After ~2.5 seconds if userspace is still running (using another thread to check this), move the wake alarm 5 more seconds If the "move" involves an unset of the wakealarm then there's a period of time where the system is midway through suspending but has no wake alarm. It will get stuck. We'd rather not remove the "move" since the idea is to avoid a cancelled suspend when the alarm fires _during_ suspend. It is difficult for the test to tell the difference between a suspend that was cancelled because the alarm fired too early and a suspend that was Signed-off-by: Bernie Thompson <bhthompson@chromium.org> Cc: Alessandro Zummo <a.zummo@towertech.it> Cc: Doug Anderson <dianders@chromium.org> Cc: "Rafael J.

* rtc-proc: permit the /proc/driver/rtc device to use other devicesKim, Milo2012-10-051-2/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | To get time information via /proc/driver/rtc, only the first device (rtc0) is used. If the rtcN (eg. rtc1 or rtc2) is used for the system clock, there is no way to get information of rtcN via /proc/driver/rtc. With this patch, the time data can be retrieved from the system clock RTC. If the RTC_HCTOSYS_DEVICE is not defined, then rtc0 is used by default.

* rtc: add boot_timesource sysfs attributeMatthew Garrett2009-09-231-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | CONFIG_RTC_HCTOSYS allows the kernel to read the system time from the RTC at boot and resume, avoiding the need for userspace to do so. Unfortunately userspace currently has no way to know whether this configuration option is enabled and thus cannot sensibly choose whether to run hwclock itself or not. Add a hctosys sysfs attribute which indicates whether a given RTC set the system clock.

* rtc: remove "RTC_ALM_SET mode" bugsDavid Brownell2007-05-081-5/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This fixes a common glitch in how RTC drivers handle two "set alarm" modes, by getting rid of the surprising/hidden one that was rarely implemented correctly (and which could expose nonportable hardware-specific behavior). The glitch comes from the /dev/rtcX logic implementing the legacy RTC_ALM_SET (limited to 24 hours, needing RTC_AIE_ON) ioctl on top of the RTC driver call providing access to the newer RTC_WKALM_SET (without those limitations) by initializing the day/month/year fields to be invalid ... that second mode. Now, since few RTC drivers check those fields, and most hardware misbehaves when faced with invalid date fields, many RTC drivers will set bogus alarm times on those RTC_ALM_SET code paths. (Several in-tree drivers have that issue, and I also noticed it with code reviews on several new RTC drivers.) This patch ensures that RTC drivers never see such invalid alarm fields, by moving some logic out of rtc-omap into the RTC_ALM_SET code and adding an explicit check (which will prevent the issue on other code paths).

* Linux-2.6.12-rc2v2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds2005-04-161-0/+282
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
