Hi Alexandre!

I've just looked at the code and wondered why there's no devm
counterpart for rtc_register_device(). Then I noticed that the release
callback for devm_rtc_allocate_device() takes care of unregistering
the device. This looks like serious devres abuse to me. In general the
idea is for the release callback to only undo whatever the devres
function did and this should be opaque to the concerned resources.

In this case I believe there's no need for the 'registered' field in
struct rtc_device - this structure should *not* care about this - and
there should be devm_rtc_register_device() whose release callback
would take care of the unregistering. Since this function would be
called after devm_rtc_allocate_device(), it would be released before
so the ordering should be fine.

Let me know your thoughts.

Best regards,
Bartosz Golaszewski
