Actually, this change opens up a bunch of other races, as any caller of
alarmtimer_get_rtcdev() could have the rtcdevice removed under it.

We'll need to have proper reference counting w/ get/put calls, probably also
adding a alarmtimer_put_rtcdev() interface.

So for now I'm dropping this from my tree. Do you think you might be able
to take another stab at this?

No. You can take the patch as a bug report and fix it yourself in the
best way you can think of :)
Ok. I'll try to find some time to do that.
