As we haven't had a mainline non-rc kernel release with this in yet,
we have more scope in what we can do to sort this out.  What I'd
suggest is:

1. change the DT compatible strings the driver has to accept both
   nxp,tda19988 and nxp,tda19989, and set the appropriate device
   in the DT file (tda19988).  I'm a bit nervous about using
   "nxp,tda1998x" in case we're clashing with devices with different
   characteristics.

2. specify that the i2c reg address must exist, but not specify what
   it should be - leave that open.

3. assume that there's a CEC at 0x34 for these two devices.

If we wish to extend support to tda998x, then we'd need to modify the
driver quite a bit anyway.
