I had a look at the driver and I guess you have a 9063AD while Steve
uses another model.
That explains why you need the uie_unsupported flag. The 9063AD can only
do alarms on a minute boundary.
Since the move to hr_timer, the uie are done using the classic alarm or
they are emulated by the core. This improved the situation for many RTCs
that don't have a separate UIE but this made it worse for a few (and
this is an example). I have plan to work on this but didn't have the
I suggest the following patch:
