Ack, this is what drivers/i2c/i2c-core-acpi.c is doing and more in general
all ACPI enumeration code always first checks _STA before doing anything
else, so I think it would be best to do this here too.

Actually I think it might be best to fully copy how drivers/i2c/i2c-core-acpi.c
does things.

Hans
