1 kHz counter device

Using such commands as
	dd if=/dev/mem bs=16 count=1 skip=$[0xc005c080/16] | od -t x4
(From a chroot to pocketworkstation.org)
And the reverse
	echo 'abcdefghij' | dd if=t2 of=/dev/mem bs=16 seek=$[0xc005c080/16]
I could confirm that the 1 kHz counter is still working when Linux is booted,
and that while it's only 16 bit, it also zeroes the 16-bit high bits
at same address.

> I vote for character device /proc/driver/fux0red_rtc if you will write it :)
Who needs a special device when you can dd if=/dev/mem ??? ;->

PS: I completed the coverage of all keys into the j820_keyb.c driver
by mapping on/off to F12. George had left many keys unmapped or badly mapped.
George: you're not used to using the arrow keys, are you?
Are you a vi user? or an Emacs user on an old terminal?

PPS: I'm having quite some trouble trying to install debian in this chroot.
Currently, I'm trying to debootstrap from the PC instead...

Ce n'est pas un crime que d'être ignorant en économie, car il s'agit après
tout d'une discipline spécialisée, considérée par beaucoup comme une "science
affligeante". Mais il est totalement irresponsable de vociférer bruyamment une
opinion sur des sujets économiques tout en restant dans cet état d'ignorance.
