Wolfram will have the last word here, but I would really prefer that
you wrap struct i2c_client in a separate devres (e.g. struct
i2c_dummy_devres) structure and avoid the cast. I find it a lot more
readable even if it only has a single member.

This is misleading as EBUSY is not necessarily the error that cased
i2c_new_device() to fail. Return NULL here and document that users
need to use IS_ERR_OR_NULL() to check for errors.
