Ah, I see.  Well... it exists for i2c devices (possibly including
RTCs).  Whereas I was thinking of a version for RTCs (possibly
including i2c devices).  Actually that won't quite work - looks like
the i2c RTC class drivers are probed differently from the RTC drivers
I was looking at which are pure platform devices.
