I would like to mention here that I am no I2C expert and have limited
knowledge of it :)

I haven't had a look at the muxes implementation earlier, now that I
looked at them, I see that they unregister/register the adapter,
perhaps while switching functionality.

I am not sure though, if this patch will break it or not. And I don't
have a way of testing it out.

I didn't mean that it will change, and perhaps we can add a
WARN_ON(adap != client->adapter).

But, thinking about it again now, I think it is possible.

What about this sequence:

- i2c-adap-register (address P1)
- .open(), client->adapter = P1;
- .read/write/ioctl()..
- i2c-adap-unregister (adapter freed)
- i2c-adap-register with same adapter_nr (address P2);
- .read/write/ioctl().

Wouldn't the address differ here ?
