Hence if we really need that (see below), we need a quirk based on compatible
value + base address.

According to the Hardware User's Manual Rev. 1.00, the registers do exist
on all RZ/G1, except for RZ/G1E (see below).

"(automatic transmission can be used as a hardware function, but this is
not meaningful for actual use cases)."

(whatever that comment may mean?)

On R-Car E3 and RZ/G2E, which have a single IIC instance, we
handled that by:

The r8a77990 (R-Car E3) and r8a774c0 (RZ/G2E)
controllers are not considered compatible with
"renesas,rcar-gen3-iic" or "renesas,rmobile-iic"
due to the absence of automatic transmission registers.

On R-Car E2 and RZ/G1E, we forgot, and used both SoC-specific and
family-specific compatible values.
