    That alone does not help. See the 'i2cdetect -l' output of my Renesas
    board here:

    i2c-4 i2c e66d8000.i2c I2C adapter
    i2c-2 i2c e6510000.i2c I2C adapter
    i2c-7 i2c e60b0000.i2c I2C adapter

    Notice that the third column carries the base address, so you know which
    i2c-%d is which physical bus. I don't know if it makes sense in your
    "virtual" case, but so far it would always print "Virtio I2C Adapter".
    Maybe it makes sense to add some parent device name, too?

    And if this is not reasonable, just skip it. As I said, it can be
    helpful at times, but it is definately not a show stopper.

    Sounds good.

    Looking forward to the next version!

    Happy hacking,
