No, don't -- that's why I said "this code is fine..." !!

You're not using platform_driver_probe(), so it's appropriate to
use the __devexit() route.

Andrew is the keeper of the RTC patch queue, so I suggest you issue
one patch against the two in MM:

	rtc-rtc-wm8350-add-support-for-wm8350-rtc.patch
	rtc-rtc-wm8350-add-support-for-wm8350-rtc-fix.patch

That would probably cause the least amount of extra work for Andrew.
