Huh, I thought GCC complained about that once, but it doesn't now (gcc-4.7.4).
Would you like me to remove it and re-send the patch, even though it looks
like you've added it to -mm?

Yeah, as you saw in the second patch, this is a mechanism to keep arch or
machine-specific code out of a general driver. SGI O2's use MMIO to read/set
the RTC (which are the default methods in this patch), but SGI Octane's, whose
code is not in-tree yet, use this same RTC (DS1687-5) via PIO access because
the RTC is tucked behind the IOC3 PCI Metadevice's "ByteBus" (write an address
port, read a data port). Thus, two different methods are needed by each
machine to talk to the same RTC driver, so this looked like the best approach,
after I looked at a few other drivers.
