Ah right, I now remember working on that code, so we're good on
m68k then. I think it should work for everyone using
depends on HAS_IOPORT || ARCH_DECSTATION
in that case, as that is the only exception.

If you ever want to revisit this, I suspect the harder part here
is to detach arch/m68k/ from the RTC_DRV_GENERIC code first, pushing
the device registration into the individual machine specific time.c
code. It's probably not even worth trying to share the rtc-cmos
driver, but it might be useful to share the library code like
