    Subject[PATCH v5 0/4] i2c-multi-instantiate pseudo driver
    Hi All,

    Here is v5 of my patch-series for dealing with multiple independent i2c
    devices being described in a single ACPI fwnode.

    Changes in v5:
    -Change patch 4 Subject prefix to platform/x86

    Changes in v4:
    -Rewrite commit message of first patch as this is NOT a bug fix for
    acpi_is_indirect_io_slave() as I thought at first, it is still necessary
    as a preperation patch for the rest of the series
    -MAINTAINER and Kconfig entry fixes
    -Some minor coding style fixes

    Changes in v3:
    -Drop the patch adding the I2C_CLIENT_IGNORE_BUSY flag/hack
    -Add patches to make ACPI fwnode-s with affected acpi_ids get enumerated as
    platform device instead of i2c-client
    -Change the i2c-multi-instantiate driver to a platform driver

    Changes in v2:
    -Rebase on 4.18-rc2

    Changes in v1:
    -Second attempt at dealing with this using a new design where a separate
    driver (which can be build as a module) is used to instantiate the
    i2c-clients instead of modifying the i2c core
    -Add an I2C_CLIENT_IGNORE_BUSY flag to make it possible for this driver to bind
    to the client instantiated for the first i2c resource and still create a new
    client using the i2c_client_id for the actual driver for the first resource,
    resulting in 2 clients at the same address (of which one is inactive)

    About merging this series, the platform-driver and ACPI patches can be
    merged independently of each other, they platform driver relies on the ACPI
    changes to gets its platform device instantiated, but if those changes are
    not in place yet, nothing bad happens.

    So if everyone is happy with this series I suggest that each part gets
    merged separately through the relevant trees.
