Subject: [PATCH] I2C: Make I2C core able to be module when I2C_ACPI is selected.

Commit da3c6647(I2C/ACPI: Clean up I2C ACPI code and Add CONFIG_I2C_ACPI
config) adds a new kernel config I2C_ACPI and make I2C core built in
when the config is selected. This is wrong because distributions
etc generally compile I2C as a module and the commit broken that.
This patch is to make I2C core able to be a module when I2C_ACPI is
selected. Original issue the commit da3c6647 tried to avoid will
be fixed in ACPICA and it's rarely triggered during unloading module.
