Seperating the RTC is straightforward i guess. The regulators too have 
their own ABI to be exported via sysfs and it looks like we've to 
change quite a bit of code to do it.

What are the other parts that we need to seperate out ? Do we need to 
provide sysfs interfaces for , say led control and charger ?
