I heard a lot about broken RTC in 2.1.x and now 2.2...  May I recommend
a simple patch, which adds a "light-weight RTC" option, essentially 
bringing the RTC driver to what it used to be in 2.0 - no interrupt
stuff, just the bare minimum to support hwclock.  (This is just another
option; the kernel can still be compiled with full-blown RTC.)

The patch is on genie.ucd.ie:/pub/alpha/patches-2.1.x/rtclight.diff.
Last time I tried it on some pre-2.2 kernel.
