In there is no legacy RTC device, don't try to use it for storing trace

Why does the driver core code here care about a platform/arch-specific
thing at all?  Did you just break all other arches?

This file is only compiled for x86. It depends on CONFIG_PM_TRACE_RTC,
which has a "depends on X86" attribute.

This feature uses the CMOS RTC memory to store data, so if that memory
is not present, it's better to avoid using it.

Please feel free to add

No, I can take it with the other patch of this small series, thanks.
