What I didn't get here: did your version of the RTC driver use probe()
or probe_new() without i2c_device_id table or did you try both? I assume
module autoloading only fails with probe_new(), otherwise we would be in
serious trouble. But I'd wonder then that userspace instantiation works.

Thanks to you and Javier for the testing. I pushed the patches to a
local branch for now and will merge once this question is clear.

Regards,

Wolfram
