I actually had a problem with using NULL for pdata with davinci I2C
and had submitted a patch here that sort of fell on the floor. The
problem was that the i2c_davinci_calc_clk_dividers is using
platform_data without a check as described above. So at the moment
using NULL doesn't really work, best as I can tell...
