In commit f309d4443130bf814e991f836e919dca22df37ae ("platform_device:
better support builtin boilerplate avoidance") we introduced the
builtin_driver macro.

Here we use that support and extend it to I2C driver registration,
so where a driver is clearly non-modular and builtin-only, we can
register it in a similar fashion.  And existing code that is clearly
non-modular can be updated with the simple mapping of

     module_i2c_driver(...)  ---> builtin_i2c_driver(...)

We've essentially cloned the former to make the latter, and taken
out the remove/module_exit parts since those never get used in a
non-modular build of the code.

A similar thing was done in commit b4eb6cdbbd13698704863f680c643c569909e1c2
("PCI: Add builtin_pci_driver() to avoid registration boilerplate").

[I've about 10 drivers/mfd and one drivers/gpio users of this in
 my personal testing queue, but obviously I can't submit those
 until builtin_i2c_driver makes it to mainline.  Since there are
 no drivers/i2c users yet this change is sent to i2c on its own.]

Hi Wolfram,

Was wondering if this is still in consideration for 4.5, so as per
the above info, I can make use of it in MFD in 4.6 without worrying
about cross maintainer dependencies.

Thanks,
Paul.

Applied to for-next (i.e. v4.5), thanks!
