Hi Mika, Benjamin,

So we've lost most of the context in this thread, but the basic question
is how to handle smbus ARA support with ACPI.

https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10030309/

Has the proposal made in this driver which is really not terribly nice
(as it registers the ARA device by messing with the address and registering
a second device).

As I understood it the ARA device registration should be handled by the
i2c master, but there are very few examples.

Phil pointed out that equivalent OF support recently got taken from him..

Any thoughts on the right way to do this?

Jonathan
