May I ask why you need to automatically bind devices to the i3cdev
driver when they don't have a driver matching the device id
loaded/compiled-in? If we get the i3c subsystem to generate proper
uevents we should be able to load the i3cdev module and bind the device
to this driver using a udev rule.

Regards,

Boris
