Btw - the purpose of this code was to detect board configuration
mismatch. After all, I2C lacks a way to properly identify peripherals,
so the more runtime checks we do at probe time, the more of a chance we
have to detect wrong setups. This device is actually well implemented
and tells us something about itself.

Hence, I'd propose to define a structure like this:

struct cap11xx_hw_model {
	uint8_t product_id;
	unsigned int num_channels;

... and attach instances of that to the members of cap1106_dt_ids[] and
cap1106_i2c_ids[]. In the probe function, check that the contents of
CAP1106_PRODUCT_ID match what is expected by the configured model.
