[PATCH] ENOTTY for rtc ioctl

Paul Gortmaker <p_gortmaker@yahoo.com>: ENOTTY for rtc ioctl:
   ioctl(d, valid, crap) --> -EINVAL
   ioctl(d, crap, ....)  --> -ENOTTY

  man ioctl agrees:

         ENOTTY The specified request does not apply to the kind of
                object that the descriptor d references.

  Currently we return -EINVAL for both cases which is not as
  informative for debugging stuff.

  Patch is for 2.5.6 but applies cleanly (with minor offset) to 2.4.19p2

  Paul.
