That could be indeed an easier way to achieve this.

+Cc Andy, Rafael,

I saw you were doing similar way as I did here [1] for the 698fffc2705c
("rtc: ds1307: Drop of_match_ptr and CONFIG_OF protections") with the
same reasoning as mine ("These prevent use of this driver with ACPI via
PRP0001.").

Do you have thoughts on Mark's proposal above (to change the
of_match_ptr())?
