It seems that both max77620 and max77686 use separate I2C addresses for
RTC block. The max77802 does not. This means that probably each child
driver should be responsible for its own regmap. The max77620 and
max77686 will create new I2C dummy devices and new regmaps. The max77802
will re-use references passed by parent (MFD).

Best regards,
