The comment about probe()/__devinit and remove()/__devexit/__devexit_p
isn't right ... when the driver uses platform_driver_probe(), the "__dev"
variants should not be used.  (It's a Good Thing to shrink runtime code
footprints, by using platform_driver_probe for non-hotpluggable devices.)

Also:  rtc_ops.ioctl() method should only handle RTC_{AIE,UIE}_{ON,OFF},
since the other standard ioctls have rtc_ops equivalents.


(This code is fine in both respects.  Though since I've received three
copies of the driver since it was merged to MM, maybe I missed something.)
