Lee Jones - June 6, 2014, 3:52 p.m.
The I2C framework supplies a means for devices to be registered without
the requirement for platform_data, DT or ACPI.  The current solution is
that every single I2C device in the kernel is forced to supply a
normally empty/sparse I2C ID table so the I2C subsystem can match to.
In an effort to rid the kernel of these tables we need to provide some
temporary work arounds until we can straighten out the blocking factors.

This change is meant to be temporary and will be stripped out once
we've converted all I2C device drivers from of_match_device() over
to the new I2C generic i2c_of_match_device().

This change imposes the i2c workaround onto every single caller of
i2c_of_match_device(), regardless of subsystem, and regardless of the
desired behaviour. It also prevents an i2c driver from getting the
correct behavour when it wants it.

So, no, I'm not okay with hooking into the core code to work around the
subsystem problem. I2C drivers need to call the i2c specific version
directly. I know that adds a line of change to the driver patches, but I
think it is necessary.
