The functions i2c_new_client_device and i2c_new_dummy_device are declared
static and marked EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(), which is at best an odd combination.
Because the functions were decided to be a part of API, this commit removes
the static attributes and adds the declarations to the header.

Fixes: 7159dbdae3c5 ("i2c: core: improve return value handling of i2c_new_device and i2c_new_dummy")

I'm afraid I think Wolfram pipped you to the post on this one.

He posted a very similar fix [0] on the 24th June.

I believe his patch is already applied and on it's way through the trees.

Regards

Kieran
