I asked the original authors of this about the change, and apparently is
results in a stack size warning.  Arnd Bergmann ask for it to be changed
from what you are suggesting to what it currently is.  See:

https://www.lkml.org/lkml/2019/6/19/440

So apparently this change will cause compile warnings due to the size of
struct i2c_client.
