Subject: [PATCH v2 3/3] i2c: add ACPI support for i2c-piix4

This enables the i2c-piix4 SMBus controller driver to enumerate I2C
slave devices using ACPI. It builds on the related I2C mux device work
in commit 8eb5c87a92c0 ("i2c: add ACPI support for I2C mux ports")

In the i2c-piix4 driver the adapters are enumerated as:
 Main SMBus adapter Port 0, Port 2, ..., aux port (i.e., ASF adapter)

However, in the AMD BKDG documentation[1], the implied order of ports is:
 Main SMBus adapter Port 0, ASF adapter, Port 2, Port 3, ...

This ordering difference is unfortunate, and we assume that ACPI
developers will use the Linux ordering.
