IMO the pm8xxx is misleading already.

QPNP "umbrella" includes 11 PMIC chips according to downstream kernel at
[1]. I think that every driver with qpnp in the name will support the
appropriate sub-function IP on every pmic of that list.

Of course the naming convention can be changed and for rtc we could say
rtc-pm8941 in compatible string.

compatible = "qcom,pm8941-rtc", "qcom,pma8084-rtc", "qcom,qpnp-rtc";

I haven't strong opinion on the naming.

Otherwise, I will do evaluate how difficult will be to merge "rtc-qpnp"
and rtc-pm8xxx. Those rtc peripherals looks similar.
