The above was a mass conversion to i2c_new_dummy_device() to make sure
all in-kernel users use the API returning an ERRPTR. Mass conversion to
the devm_ variant of the same function was too troublesome.

With another series, I wanted to remove superfluous error checking of
i2c_unregister_device() because it is NULL-ptr safe, like here:

But for these two RTC drivers, I figured moving to devm_* is way easier
than fixing up the mass conversion result from coccinelle.
