Ok, I had another round of google'ing and found this:

There, the datasheet specifically for TDA19988 only states 0x70 and
0x34 as the two i2c addresses. Therefore, TDA19988 has fixed i2c
addresses while TDA9983b has configurable (main) i2c address.

Not as easy as we thought ;)

I suggest reword the reg property to:
"- reg: shall be set to the I2C address"

and optionally list all known addresses for each TDA[1]998x in the
