Bug#475959: hpet=force vs /dev/rtc

Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-686
Version: 2.6.24-5
Severity: important

If I boot with hpet=force I avoid approximately 35 wakeups per second.
Unfortunately I noticed two unnecessary delays during the boot process.
These are caused by the fact that hwclock is not able to read the time
from /dev/rtc. The hwclock command works only with --directisa.

I installed hardy with vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic in another partition on
the same machine. There are no problems with hpet=force and hwclock.

Is there any reason why this option is not set in the Debian kernel?
