Subject: [PATCH] rtc: mc13xxx: fix a double-unlock issue

From: Qiushi Wu <>

In function mc13xxx_rtc_probe, the mc13xxx_unlock() is called
before rtc_register_device(). But in the error path of
rtc_register_device(), the mc13xxx_unlock() is called again,
which causes a double-unlock problem. To fix this problem, we
need to call mc13xxx_lock() again in this error path.
