Normally i2c_new_device will check that a client at the same address does
not already exists.

On systems with ACPI instantiated i2c-clients, normally there is 1 fw_node
per i2c-device and that fw-node contains 1 I2cSerialBus resource for that 1

But in some rare cases the manufacturer has decided to describe multiple
i2c-devices in a single ACPI fwnode with multiple I2cSerialBus resources.

After an earlier attempt to fix this in the i2c-core which resulted in a
lot of extra code to support this corner-case it was decided to go for a
different approach. The next patch in this series introduces a new special
i2c-multi-instantiate driver which can be build as a module and which will
bind to the i2c-client which gets instantiated by the core for the first
I2cSerialBus resource in the fwnode.

This driver will instantiate a new i2c-client per I2cSerialBus resource,
using the driver_data from the acpi_device_id it is binding to to tell it
which chip-type (and optional irq-resource) to use when instantiating.

Since it binds to the core instantiated i2c-client and claims the
acpi_device_id of the fwnode, it also needs to instantiate a new i2c-client
for the first I2cSerialBus resource uses the chip-id for the real driver,
so that that can bind to the i2c-device described by the first I2cSerialBus
resource, this requires the new I2C_CLIENT_IGNORE_BUSY flag.

Note this means that we will be instantiating 2 i2c_client-s for the first
I2cSerialBus resource, this is not pretty, but since the multi-instantiate
driver does exactly 0 i2c-transfers this is not a problem.
