[PATCH v9 3/5] rtc: max77686: Fail to probe if no RTC regmap irqchip is set

The max77686 mfd driver adds a regmap IRQ chip which creates an
IRQ domain that is used to map the virtual RTC alarm1 interrupt.

The RTC driver assumes that this will always be true since the
PMIC IRQ is a required property according to the max77686 DT
binding doc. If an "interrupts" property is not defined for a
max77686 PMIC, then the mfd probe function will fail and the
RTC platform driver will never be probed. But even when it is
not possible to probe the rtc-max77686 driver without a regmap
IRQ chip, it's better to explicitly check if the IRQ chip data
is not NULL and gracefully fail instead of getting an OOPS.
