I think I build tested version 1, but not the current version.

I dropped the check because it duplicates the check in rtc_generic_init()
below it: the old genrtc driver needed the check in get_rtc_time()
because it would call that function unconditionally, but with the
rtc-generic driver, we know that we only ever call this after
registering the device successfully.

Yes: again, the genrtc driver had obscure calling conventions requiring
RTC_24H to be returned on success, while the rtc-generic driver uses
the normal kernel coding style of using 0 for success.

Previously, this function was used to convert from get_rtc_time()
calling conventions (without a device) to the normal rtc_class_ops:

static int generic_get_time(struct device *dev, struct rtc_time *tm)
{
unsigned int ret = get_rtc_time(tm);

if (ret & RTC_BATT_BAD)
return -EOPNOTSUPP;

return rtc_valid_tm(tm);
}

You are right, it should check for null_rtc_set_time instead, I probably
copied it from powerpc, which does this a bit differently.

Actually calling null_rtc_set_time however would be (slightly) wrong here,
because we want to return an error to user space if we try to set a
read-only rtc.

Yes, I think that would be great. When an rtc driver is registered, you
don't actually need the read_persistent_clock/update_persistent_clock
functions (there are __weak versions of them that do nothing and cause
a fallback to calling into the rtc subsystem), so you can replace
the rtc_sh_get_time/rtc_sh_set_time with proper drivers one at a time.

I only see two of them anyway (dreamcast and sh03), so that should
be easy enough to do. For instance in arch/sh/boards/mach-sh03/rtc.c,
the sh03_time_init() function should register a platform driver,
whose probe function calls devm_rtc_device_register() to register
with the rtc subsystem. Then you move the entire file to drivers/rtc/
and change the callers of sh03_time_init() to create the device
manually (for the classic board file) or drop it (for DT).

After you have done that, all rtc related code can be removed from
arch/sh/kernel/time.c.
