Yes, I'm struggling to find out which devices are connected to the
smbus, in case there're some already inside the SoC (instead of just
entirely board specific).

I'm fine with them, just wondered whether BIOS needs to add some extra
support for the probing, that is not already somehow coming w/ aegesa.

Unfortunately, we cannot rely on board vendors to do that right and
cope w/ old and incomplete firmware. (that's also the reason why I'm
*not* using acpi gpio entries for the apu2+ board family).
