Did you compile your kernel with RTC clock support?

I've had persistent trouble with all this stuff myself (I've still got
files dated 2018, and changelogs in debian packages from 2017, and so

Actually, I've been using an unpatched kernels for at least the last
six months.  Even 2.0.X kernels.  I'm running 2.0.34pre2 right now,
but I was running 2.0.33 before that.

I've been too lazy to try and get the kernel-package package working

make it sound like that might already be the case.  That might be part
