Bug#427776: nvram-wakeup: feature suggestion: include /proc/acpi/alarm access strategy

Package: nvram-wakeup
Version: 0.97-12
Severity: wishlist

I wonder if it wouldn't make sense to include interfacing
/proc/acpi/alarm (where supported) to the directisa/nvram wakeup time
programming access strategies.

This would sort of morph nvram-wakeup into "wakeup-tools" but that
doesn't seem too unfortunate, really.

Also, "guess-helper" is quite a generic name. It'd be less
collision-prone to name it something like nvram-wakeup-guess-helper
(nvrw-guess-helper ?).
