is there a way to access the CMOS ram on i386 platforms
from NetBSD e.g. like /dev/nvram on LINUX? I try to find
a way to program the "auto-poweron" (RTC alarm) function
without having to use the BIOS. There is a project on
http://sourceforge.net/projects/nvram-wakeup for doing
this but it relys on /dev/nvram. But maybe there are
other (better?) ways for this, e.g. ACPI?
