Ah. It's very possible that the issue is due to the fact that I was
testing this on an old kernel (3.14) that's missing that feature. OK,
if that's fixed then at least the actual bug (making i2c0 fail to
load) is not a problem. It'd still be nice to be able to assign a bus
number to this bus just to make reading of the logs easier, but it's
not a functionality requirement.
