Let's say the RTC has been used to start your platform, then the irq
handler will be called as soon as the irq is requested, leading to a
null pointer dereference.

Yes and IIRC, I did comment that the rtc change also had to be separated
from 1/7.

Also, I really doubt this new compatible is necessary at all as you
could simply directly use mediatek,mt6397-rtc.
