Why is it like generic_match_buses[]? I thought it would look at
struct device::of_node or struct device::fw_node and try to extract
device data out that and if that fails it would fallback to some new
function like struct bus_type::get_match_data() that does the right
thing for the bus. In the case of i2c it would extract the i2c_client's
i2c_device_id pointer and return it onwards.
