    It's in my sparc next tree:

    That's not what I do, I use the real RAW chip drivers provided by the
    RTC layer.

    That's the way to do this.

    I think the powerpc folks did the wrong thing and should just register
    generic platform_device objects in their platform code, and let the
    RTC layer drive the individual devices in response.

    All the powerpc folks are doing is providing a dummy shim into the
    RTC layer using their machine description vector, and not really using
    the RTC layer drivers at all.
