Then use dev_debug() and don't make the trace conditional on
i2c_rate != typical_rate. The only case where we should warn users
is i2c_rate > typical_rate, because that might lead to malfunctions.

I didn't say that, there might be use cases where one wants to slow
down the I3C bus to be able to probe it or use a slower rate when
things do not work properly. It's rather unlikely to happen, but I
don't think it deserves a warning message when that's the case.

And yet, you keep insisting (and ignoring my feedback) on that point :P.
