Because I'm not passing the i3c_device_id to the ->probe() method, and
if the driver is supporting different variants of the device, it may
want to know which one is being probed.

I considered retrieving this information in the core just before probing
the driver and passing it to the ->probe() function, but it means
having an extra i3c_device_match_id() call for everyone even those who
don't care about the device_id information, so I thought exporting this
function was a good alternative (device drivers can use it when they
actually need to retrieve the device_id).

Anyway, that's something I can change if you think passing the
i3c_device_id to the ->probe() method is preferable.

Yes, I tried to only export functions that I think will be needed by
I3C device drivers and I3C master drivers. Note that I didn't post the
dummy device driver I developed to test the framework (partly because
this is

Thanks.
