I'm mostly following this, but why would we need an i2c_board_info or
i2c_acpi_new_device()? The INT3472 entries that refer to actual tps68470
devices do have an I2cSerialBusV2 enumerated in _CRS so in their case
there's an i2c device registered with the kernel already.


I think we need those things when we get round to handling the
VCM/EEPROM that's hidden within the sensor's ACPI entry, but I've not
done any work on that yet at all.
