There is another problem: board infos are scanned at the controller
registration time only. So if we register the board infos after
the controller registered, then nobody will probe the board infos.

This is all solvable by hacking the i2c core code though. I started
it, but it turned out to be ugly. I'll finish it though, just to show
it someday.

But now I'm not sure if it worth the efforts. Maybe we could just
modify the drivers to do something like this?

This is not exactly "transparently" to the drivers, but well..
