Ok, tell me the new directions to the new CVS repostitory (or maybe i
need to be added to the alioth project or something) and i will give it
a try.

Also, i wonder if anyone has an idea if building the RTC clocks as
modules would be acceptable. The CONFIG_GEN_RTC doesn't work on pegasos,
but using the CONFIG_RTC that does work breaks pmacs.

I have tried porting the CONFIG_RTC code to the per subarch
CONFIG_GEN_RTC stuff, but without much luck yet. I haven't had enough
time, and was sick sunday and yesterday.
