 [ColdFire] Handle rtc chip on i2c bus  Can't Post 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Hi:
For 5475 EVB board, there is a rv5c387 rtc chip. In rv5c387-rtc.c, the
"init" function calls "i2c_add_driver" to add an i2c driver and
"misc_register" to add a misc driver.
When I open the misc driver to read/write to the rtc chip, the read/write
functions returns error. I am confused here because there are 2 drivers for
1 rtc chip. Which driver should I open to access the chip?

Thanks,
Shiyuan

Logic's BSP already has support for the RTC on the eval board, using
the I2C driver. It supplies a /dev/rtc driver for other
utilities(such as hwclock) to access the rtc.
