Sounds great.

I believe drivers/usb/misc/ is for usb devices, not for usb hots
(otg or otherwise), but I'm not sure where else it would go.

Ok. One thing I'm not sure about is how you would pair the i2c
device with the platform specific driver. The easiest solution would
be to assume that there is always just one of each, so isp1301 binds
to the i2c device and exports functions to be used by the platform
driver. This would fail if you ever have more than one isp1301
in the system, but neither omap nor pnx4008 seem to be doing that.

I guess we can always add support for that later if needed, using
a device tree phandle link, or a pointer to the i2c device in
platform_data.
