I'm not sure what value it adds, compared to having a single entry as
we have today. scripts/get_maintainer.pl will produce the same output,
won't it?

This script (and our minds) being directory-driven, I suspect that the
only efficient way to split the entries would be to first move all i2c bus
driver for embedded platforms to a separate subdirectory. I'm leaving
it to Ben and the embedded community to decide whether they want to do
that or not.
