I did some tests w/ all patches applied (the one below and the ones in
the other series). I had to fix two errors: one pointed in the patch
below and the other one in a patch in the other series (I'll reply to
the patch).

With both RTC_DRV_DS1307 and RTC_DRV_DS1307_CENTURY enabled, this works
as expected on my side: booting on a system which had only seen an
ISL12057 driver, the time on the system at boot (or via hwclock -r) is
correct. Playing w/ -s and -w options works as expected. Booting back on
a kernel w/ ISL12057 driver, things are also ok. So, AFAICT, your
changes do the work.

One small thing though: for user which have always used RTC_DRV_ISL12057
config knob, the change will not be transparent. Would it be possible to
somehow make that old kernel config knob some kind of alias for
RTC_DRV_DS1307 and RTC_DRV_DS1307_CENTURY in Kconfig?
