Huh? As far as I can tell, there is. Also, I want messages from the 
kernel mention something I can map to the real hw, e.g. fixed IIC 
device index, not some random number.

This already works with the current OCP code, so if you want change 
it to a "superior" technology, please, make sure it provides the same 
functionality as trivial OCP one.

I find it rather puzzling that instead people are trying to make 
this a non-issue as soon as it cannot be implemented easily with 
their new and shiny infrastructure.
