Hmm, and either I was confused, or have looked at some other user of the
reboot_notifier, but rtc-m41t80.c doesn't call unregister from it's
notifier. And unfortunately there are a bit more users of the
reboot_notifier than I first thought. :/

I will check if I can find out at least at which driver I had a look at
which did call unregister_notifier from the notifier itself.
