Thanks for review.
Accepted most of review comment and will update in next patch.

Maxim and TI.

The driver (as most of Maxim's) looks quite similar to existing RTC
driver, like max77802. It is difficult to spot the exact differences
(I don't have 77620's datasheet) but I would suggest not duplicating
the work. Maybe the biggest difference is the way you configure the
regmap... but still sometimes the regmap config can be shared.
The MFD and its sub module drivers are too much couped and hence
dificult to use the IP driver across PMIC. For almost all Maxim PMIC, we
end up of same type of RTC driver.
Probably, we need to enhance the mfd sub system to allow sub module
driver to decoupe from its APIs.

Why early resume?
When we go on suspend, the interrupts are masked by framework. For
regmap-irq, it is stored on local reg value but not written into the
In Nvidia Tegra system, ARM GIC controller registered before the other
interrupt controller like GPIO, PMIC etc.
When wakeup happened through RTC alarm, we get the interrupt from PMIC
and on resume path, the PMIC isr handler get called after PMIC interrupt
to the GIC is unmasked. But at this time, PMIC RTC alarm is still in
masked state by regmap-irq which causes the interrupt to RTC ignore in
the PMIC ISR handler and so RTC Isr did not get called and not cleared
interrupt. This causes PMIC ISr handler to stuck on loop.
The need is to unmask the RTC alarm interrupt on PMIC interrupt driver
before PMIC interrupt served so that we can have proper interrupt status
in handler and rtc isr can get called.
For this, RTC alarm interrupt need to be EARLY_RESUME.
