Congrats, that hack looks awesome.
Now you need to nag the swedes to have it commited and put on the cvs build page (the 8mb ram hack for the archos models is there so you have a chance
Yes, it would be good to have it in cvs, so I don't need to worry about the patch getting out of sync. I believe Linus is doing the mod (albeit with a different clock chip) so it is looking promising.
wouldn't it be nice to have Rockbox autodetect this? That way it could get in the standard builds ... on h100 I believe there is no problem with code size, so adding a few bytes shouldn't hurt anyone.
Yes, it could be done like with the radio chip detection, but there are a few issues, e.g.
- while one could detect the presence of the chip, the alarm mod can not be detected
- people might want to use different rtc chips requiring different drivers?
- some other compile-time options depend on RTC_CONFIG (i.e. filename generation for recording) which would need to be changed to run-time detection as well
If only a few people are using it I don't think it is worth the effort. Let's see how many people will do the mod.
