There is no overlay because you are using a regmap which handles
concurrency for you.

What your patch is doing is:

struct mt6397_rtc *rtc = dev_get_drvdata(pdev->dev.parent);

then you use rtc->regmap

But in the rtc driver, you have:

struct mt6397_chip *mt6397_chip = dev_get_drvdata(pdev->dev.parent);
struct mt6397_rtc *rtc;

rtc->regmap = mt6397_chip->regmap;

So there is no benefit from being the child of the rtc, you could just
do the following in your reset driver:

struct mt6397_chip *mt6397_chip = dev_get_drvdata(pdev->dev.parent);

and then use mt6397_chip->regmap.
