Thanks a lot for doing this. It's always nice to see hundreds of lines
of code being removed from the kernel :) Some comments:

This is unreasonably low at HZ=1000 (2 ms). The SMBus specification
states that clients can hold the clock line low for up to 50 ms if they
need additional time to process the previous commands. So I would use
msecs_to_jiffies(50) (don't forget to include <linux/jiffies.h>.)

I doubt you want to do this. This would let any hardware monitoring
driver probe your bus for a device, while presumably you already know
which hardware monitoring device is present and you want to instantiate
the i2c client yourself. This will probably become clearer when you
start using the lm87 driver and modify it to support new-style i2c
binding.

Please always use strlcpy.

That's pretty aggressive and probably not needed.
