Then we're at least in the clear for i2c, serial and the rest ... as these
are numbered in the soc documentation, and all boards I've seen so
far use these number also to identify these in schematics.

So an i2c2 is always i2c2 even if i2c1 is not populated.

And of course doing
i2c0 = &i2c2
would definitly confuse people to no end.

So I guess we'll just move the mmc stuff over to board files.
