They are optional in the sense that driver should work without them, but
if they specified we need both.

Do you have to use 0x14 address? Can you used the default 0x5d?

My concern with trying to do the address selection without RST line is
that it is quite unreliable, as it really depends on timings between the
chip reset, INT line being driven by the host and then being switched to
