From my point of view, I think all chips in at24_ids[] array should be checked
about restrictions regarding the size truncation (especially the ones from the
initial commit: "2b7a5056a0a7ff17d5d2 i2c: New-style EEPROM driver using device IDs"
which introduces AT24_DEVICE_MAGIC() macro) and if none of them has such restrictions
we should get rid of the ilog2() restrictions.

Just my 2 cents...
