You have added alternate methods that do exactly the same thing as
gettime/settime.  Then, you convert just two drivers over to the new
interface.

I don't want to have this job half done, with some driver being
forgotten along the way.  Please, just change the signatures of
gettime/settime and convert *all* of the drivers.  After all, there
are not that many drivers to convert.

Thanks,
Richard
