argh. It looks like this is not the fault of the kernel, so i'm closing
I tried rolling back to 3.2.1-1 from snapshot.debian.net:
and it turned out that this machine was having the same rtc problems
after reboot to this older kernel (and on 3.1.8-2, which i tried as
well). So something must have happened to my hardware that randomly
coincided with my switching kernels
I tried removing power and batteries from the machine, and booting to
different kernels, and the rtc still failed.
On my sixth reboot, i went into the BIOS setup, manually changed the
time of the clock by a little bit, and chose "Exit and Save" (or
whatever its moral equivalent is).
That must have reset something in the hardware, because now (rebooting
into 3.2.4-1) the rtc is back to working as normal.
Apologies for the false alarm over what appears to be some kind of
flakey hardware hiccup.
