I tested at pxa910 which uses rtc-sa1100 as driver.
the test procedure is simple
open->ioctl(RTC_RD_TIME)->close
With the original code, the rtc will not update, i always get the same value

remove clock disable/enable in release/open, and enable/disable clock
at probe/remove.
the rtc can update, and i can read the correct rtc value.
