Right, indeed.

What kind of change are you looking for? The example was introduced by commit
04606ccc84e3 ("i2c: designware: introducing I2C_SLAVE definitions") that says:

- A example was added to designware-core.txt Documentation that shows
how the slave can be setup using DTS

So I could change this example to instead use a real EEPROM compatible (e.g:
"microchip,24c02") instead of "linux,slave-24c02". Would that be correct?
