I am missing something. You are enumerated over i2c device, which was
created from ACPI PNP resource. There is a valid handle or and the
device has an ACPI companion at the least. If this failing, I have to
check the code for acpi i2c.
Can you check why this check failed? We may have bug in i2c handling.

Thanks,
