Hi,

It's needed because the ADC needs a link to the trigger device. This is
a hardware link inside the SoC, so I thought the best way is to describe
this hardware is in the Device Tree.
Otherwise the ADC node is unaware of the RTC triggering possibility.
If we just assign the RTC trigger device to the ADC through the sysfs,
the ADC cannot distinguish between the RTC trigger and other various
triggers which can be attached.
