For this, is it possible to just configure the ACPI table so we spoof
that the LPC slave (IPI0001), is an i2c/spi slave? Could we just add a
resource of type ACPI_RESOURCE_TYPE_SERIAL_BUS, and common serial bus
type i2c/spi to solve this?

This resource would/should need to be ignored for other purposes.
