Subject: Removing pcap?

Hello Antonio, Harald,

I've had a look at the PCAP RTC driver because I'm removing a few
deprecated APIs. While doing so, I've discovered that the driver has
never worked properly because PCAP_RTC_TOD_MASK and PCAP_RTC_DAY_MASK
are both missing a bit so every day would roll over at 18:12:15 and the
whole the date would roll over in 2014.

I discussed with Arnd about 59ee93a528b9 ("ARM: pxa: remove irq_to_gpio
from ezx-pcap driver") and it seems the whole EZX support has been
broken for a while.

Is it worth fixing the RTC driver or could I remove it?
