The idea was for almost DIY and / or manufacturer to develop a
prototype without modifying match code and faking ACPI IDs.
That's why the target of PRP0001 is almost sensors connected to I2C and SPI.

That's why I agreed on your patch to help with this. But! The proper
solution for the devices (device manufacturer) is to allocate an ACPI
ID and provide a corresponding table to the driver.

This is my understanding of that exercise. Rafael can correct me.

It is not.
