Sorry, I hadn't been following the discussion closely, but
could you explain why we are going from a generic framework
where we hook in our platform specific part to a totally
independent driver that has such an increase in code size.

Why couldn't you fix the generic part so that udev could
load it automatically?

I much prefer to have this code in the platform support
code as it was. It is much more effort (a pain) to maintain
a separate driver were I have to cater to a subsystem's
maintainer, and with this rtc it seems everyone who was
using the generic PPC driver will need to do the same.
