Hi everybody,

can anyone tell me why the batt_status in /proc/drivers/rtc always returns okay? I measured the RTC battery voltage and it is beyond dead (0.0004V). I tested it on an IBM R51 and Lenovo R61 laptop. It even returns okay, when I boot without RTC battery at all.

Thanks in advance for your help.
