If you try to get an I²C ore SPI device out of pure ACPI device (with given
APCI _HID) you will fail. So, it's not correct. You are retrieving companion
devices, while they are still in the struct acpi_device.

And don't ask me, why it's so. I wasn't designed that and didn't affect any
decision made there.
