My primary platform (alpha) does have it neither :-((

Ok, I attached it. I don't know if it is factually correct, but I know
I have a recent G4 and do need this option (and I don't have a visible
ADB port). Maybe also the text for the real time clock should state
that it must not even be present as module (or maybe this is a Debian
specific bug in the startup scripts?).

Thanks for providing this kernel tree.

Greetings
