rtc-at91rm9200: avoid spurious irqs
David Brownell [Thu, 24 Jul 2008 04:30:46 +0000 (21:30 -0700)]
This fixes kernel http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11112 (bogus
RTC update IRQs reported) for rtc-at91rm9200 by scrubbing old IRQ status
before enabling IRQs.

It also removes nonfunctional periodic IRQ support from this driver;
only update IRQs are reported, or provided by the hardware.

I suspect some other RTCs probably have versions of #11112; it's easy to
overlook, since most non-RTC drivers don't care about spurious IRQs:
they're not reported to userspace.
