Subject[PATCH 1/2] platform/x86: i2c-multi-instantiate: Add flag for passing fwnode
In some cases the driver for the i2c_client-s which i2c-multi-instantiate
instantiates may need access some fields / methods from to the ACPI fwnode
for which i2c_clients are being instantiated.

An example of this are CPLM3218 ACPI device-s. These contain CPM0 and
CPM1 packages with various information (e.g. register init values) which
the driver needs.

Passing the fwnode through the i2c_board_info struct also gives the
i2c-core access to it, and if we do not pass an IRQ then the i2c-core
will use the fwnode to get an IRQ, see i2c_acpi_get_irq().

This is a problem when there is only an IRQ for 1 of the clients described
in the ACPI device we are instantiating clients for. If we unconditionally
pass the fwnode, then i2c_acpi_get_irq() will assign the same IRQ to all
clients instantiated, leading to kernel-oopses like this (BSG1160 device):

[ 27.340557] genirq: Flags mismatch irq 76. 00002001 (bmc150_magn_event) vs. 00000001 (bmc150_accel_event)
[ 27.340567] Call Trace:

So we cannot simply always pass the fwnode. This commit adds a PASS_FWNODE
flag, which can be used to pass the fwnode in cases where we do not have
the IRQ problem and the driver for the instantiated client(s) needs access
to the fwnode.
