Sounds reasonable. I don't like approach when we store information about
I2C devices inside of I2C bus driver but this kind of autodetection
seems to be lesser evil than a DMI matching.

Hmm... And we need to handle case when all three INT33FE devices are
enabled in the DSDT...

Instead of separating of driver to two (and more when we will find new
CHT device...) I think about some kind of configuration variants table
with selection by PTYP/resource count/etc. But typeC devices will
require to define interconnections for example and we will get yet
another hardly readable code with quirks, autodetection magic and big
constant tables...

OK, I plan to start to make some experiments with this at weekend.
