I see things like this on my console:

[ 1.684617] spmi spmi-0: PMIC arbiter version v5 (0x50000000)

and 'spmi' is the bus name I'm thinking about. But I think that's
because there isn't a driver attached. Nothing prints for the 0-00
device by default, so I enabled the debug print for it and I see

[ 1.693280] pmic-spmi 0-00: 28: unknown v2.0

Anyway, the device name was written to follow i2c as far as I can tell.

If scripts, i.e. computers, have a hard time figuring out the name of
the device then fix the script?
