This is totally fine to implement it incrementally. Please just update the
commit message with the more detailed explanation above.

You won't see any difference on the wire. I don't know your HW. It might
be that SMBus mode is more "automatic" and uses less interrupts. Or
stuff like Alert or HostNotification only works in this mode. If you and
the driver maintainers think it is worth the added complexity, I am
fine, too.
