The OF helpers patch depends on the patches below to support autoloading
i2c modules using the alias mechanism. Otherwise, we need to translate
between i2c module type and driver_name in the helper patch (like currently
done in fsl_soc.c function of_find_i2c_driver()). However, this old way
doesn't really scale well.
