As you said, if rtc driver has no read_time callback, rtc_read_time()
is failed in rtc_dev_update_irq_enable_emul() anyway.

rtc_dev_update_irq_enable_emul()
 |_ set_uie()
     |_ rtc_read_time()

What I worried about the error from rtc->ops->read_time().
If rtc->ops->read_time() returns another type of error except -EINVAL,
then rtc interface can't run rtc_dev_update_irq_enable_emul().

I think it needs to be changed that check to ensure error for
rtc_dev_update_irq_enable_emul().
