Subject[PATCH 0/3] repair RTC subsys (for i.MX)
The recent updates to the RTC subsystem (removing UIE interrupts and use
alarms instead) introduced two problems for i.MX (and the subsys in
general, I'd think):

a) because registering the rtc now calls get_alarm(), the requirement
has been added for a lot of drivers that drvdata is properly set up
_before_ registering. rtc-mxc did not do that (probably bad; but as said
like a lot of other rtc-drivers currently) and oopsed.

b) the callbacks to the rtc-core for update_irqs have been removed, but
irq-handlers are still there, now being unused cruft. In case of
rtc-mxc, this is only one if-block, but for rtc-mc13xxx.c this is a
seperate handler.

From a glimpse, most platform drivers seem to have at least one of these
problems now :( John, am I correct or am I missing something?

Kind regards,

rtc: mc13xxx: remove UIE signaling
rtc: mxc: fix crash on boot
rtc: mxc: remove UIE signaling
