Default Bug#487875: /dev/rtc is busy

Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-amd64
Version: 2.6.24-7

For a few months there is no use of hwclock possible
on my computer because of folowing reason:

hwclock --debug

hwclock from util-linux-ng
hwclock: Open of /dev/rtc failed, errno=16: Device or resource busy.
No usable clock interface found.
Cannot access the Hardware Clock via any known method.

But I don't know about any program using it.

orca:/proc/driver> cat rtc
rtc_time : 20:19:44
rtc_date : 2008-06-24
rtc_epoch : 1900
alarm : 00:00:00
DST_enable : no
BCD : yes
24hr : yes
square_wave : no
alarm_IRQ : no
update_IRQ : no
periodic_IRQ : no
periodic_freq : 1024
batt_status : okay

Solution: modularizing rtc could help??
