Good idea, although unfortunately this means expanding
module_i2c_driver. Or maybe I can use printk_once() in eeprom_probe().
Or even just a dev_warn() there to really spam the kernel log in a very
visible way.

Would you prefer a v2 of this patch including that change, or a
separate, incremental patch?

Thanks,
