We are using uml. We need at, but it is not working.
kernel clock is strange.
date returns correct date, but "ps faux" doesn't return correct start time.
It's like if internal kernel time is slower than real time...

root@...:/home/guest# ps faux | grep faux
root 963 0.0 0.3 2464 816 pts/0 R 12:50 0:00 \_ ps faux
at requests stays in the queue...
internal uml call to sleep are corrects (good duration)...
Kernel is compiled with CONFIG_UML_REAL_TIME_CLOCK=y
(given by showconfig)
devfs doesn't create a /dev/rtc device (which cause some errors at uml startup with hwclock).
I've seen that /dev/rtc is directly linked to hardware, and that uml is virtual so /dev/rtc couldn't work.
Does any one has a clue to solve both problems?

The start time problem is fixed in the latest patch. I checked at, and it
seemed to be fine as well.
