I am not sure if your solution would cover all my needs:

1.- With pinctrl I can model the SoC pins, right? That would not stop
the RTC output though, so the 32 kHz signal would be generated anyways
even though the SoC would ignore it. That is one of the things I want to
avoid.

2.- What happens if the RTC output is a clock for an external device
that is only required when the SoC is in sleep mode? In that case I
would like the RTC driver to control the output with the modes it provides.
