But what actually happens?  RTC interrupts aren't going to be high
volume, if we get the odd spurious interrupt and handle it gracefully
I'm not sure we really care.

( As I'm traveling so please ignore the mail format)
spurious interrupt we get on clearing event and event can be from any
mfd children. But since now, deferring event clear is not the approach
we can ignore about the spurious interrupt.
Now looking at the old issue of determining the RTC type (periodic or tick)
on event clearing this info (RTC type) gets lost for the register since in regmap_irq
we first clear and then process the event.
