Hm, I knew that might become a problem at some point. The Cadence IP
does not need the slot index because it works with addresses and
figure the device slot out of this address, but it looks like others
don't go this road.

Except these are not the only thing we retrieve before attaching the
device. Also, if we go this road, that means we don't have the same path
for devices whose dynamic address is assigned through SETDASA, and those
that are discovered using DAA.

That's the very reason I didn't go this road. It gets messy if we
already know this device. This being said, among all the options you
list here, this is the one I prefer. Let's see if we can standardize
the resource allocation/free process and let ->attach/detach() only
take care of the device/bus configuration.

I'd really like to keep the device-slot-id a priv information, because
we don't know how other IPs will deal with I3C device resources.

I agree.

I'll try to come up with something. Need to think a bit more about it.

Thanks,
