[PATCH] I2C: Resolve resource conflict between i2c-viapro and via686a

Here comes the finalized version of our patch solving the PCI device
resource conflict between the i2c-viapro bus driver and and the via686a
chip driver. It is based on your original work and the IRC conversation
we had yesterday.

The retained solution is to not permanently register the PCI device in
either driver. This is legitimate since we only need it at init time to
retrieve the ISA address of a sub-device (SMBus master or integrated
sensors), and possibly change that address on user request. Once this is
done we can safely release the PCI device for others to use.

I am really glad to see this problem finally solved, as this was the
last remaining annoying issue left from the Linux 2.6 migration (missing
drivers left apart), and was generating many complaints both at our
level and at the distributions' support.
