This is documented as used for devices that have multiple I2cSerialBus
resources. That's not the case for the INT3472 as far as I can tell. I
don't think we should abuse this mechanism.

Don't forget that the TPS68470 I2C driver needs to be ACPI-aware, as it
has to register an OpRegion for ACPI-based Chrome OS devices. On other
platforms (including DT platforms), it should only register regulators,
clocks and GPIOs. Given the differences between those platforms, I don't
think a TPS68470 driver that would fake being unaware of being probed
through ACPI would be a good idea. We can always refactor the code later
when we'll have a non-ACPI based platform using the TPS68470, without
such a platform there's no way we can test the I2C driver without ACPI
anyway.
