Honestly, I don't think it is worth doing that. On armv7, this only
removes 248 bytes. Also, compiling without CONFIG_RTC_INTF_DEV simply
makes the RTC unusable. There are no tools actually using the sysfs
interface instead of the char device interface. I prefer keeping
CONFIG_RTC_INTF_DEV private to the core.
