The RTC is used, for example, with midi. My midi setup is broken for
me with the latest [testing] kernel if I don't blacklist snd-rtctimer:
playing a midi file results in just the first note going on forever.
Funny thing is there's no such thing as snd-rtctimer.ko, but lsmod
showed it, and removing it made midi working again.
