I'll argue the other way. I think that the whole CONFIG_OF block should
be remove, or at least be confined to public functions. The reason that
I've chosen to do it this way is that the i2c_device_probe() uses an
IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_OF), which will evaluate to 0 if OF isn't selected
which in turn will cause the compiler to throw away of_i2c_probe()
because it is static and never used.

The big advantage of this is that we get compile coverage for these
functions independent of what configuration is built. The same could
probably be done for the whole CONFIG_ACPI block. In fact I volunteer to
provide that patch if I've convinced you that this is actually better
than sprinking the code with the #ifdef blocks that make it harder than
necessary to verify that the code builds in all configurations.

Done in v2.

Thanks,
