rtc: fix reported IRQ rate for when HPET is enabled
Paul Gortmaker [Fri, 11 Jul 2008 00:30:48 +0000 (17:30 -0700)]
The IRQ rate reported back by the RTC is incorrect when HPET is enabled.

Newer hardware that has HPET to emulate the legacy RTC device gets this value
wrong since after it sets the rate, it returns before setting the variable
used to report the IRQ rate back to users of the device -- so the set rate and
the reported rate get out of sync.
