I would very much like to see this driver be implemented as a degenerate
RTC driver because this sorts of maps pretty well to the "rtcwake" use
mode, and this is a persistent clock source, and even a clock source as
well (I would rather avoid going the MFD route to expose these 3
"functions" though).

Thanks!
