Ok, understood. Fine for me that way as well. I am just a little worrying that
the "host-notify" can now be present in both controller AND slave nodes
and might be a bit hard to understand. At the same time I don't have a better
proposal for naming the binding for the controller.

Please do not consider serie v2 I just posted few days ago and I will
post a serie v3 updating the binding information and using the host-notify
binding in the i2c-stm32f7 driver.
