It breaks the endless loop that happens later on in the RTC read path.

This patch though is about fixing the bug with not handling the enable
of the snvs_rtc_enable() correctly, which is why it should be applied.

The right flow is to handle the error on snvs_rtc_enable() as soon as it
happens as opposed wait for read() to -ETIMEDOUT.

I'll dig out your patch and give it a review.
