I don't have that particular RTC so I can't test but the interrupt
handling in pcf8563_irq seems problematic too. I guess the RTC will only
trigger once per second because the call to pcf8563_set_alarm_mode will
explicitely leave the alarm enabled. The core doesn't really care but it
doesn't really expect the alarm to stay enabled. i.e. It will ensure the
alarm is enabled again after setting it when necessary. I think it would
be safer to simply clear both AIE and AF here. Could you test?
