Perhaps indeed /usr/include/i2c/linux/i2c?

And I2C_HEADERS need to point (and default) to /usr/include/i2c, while

#include <linux/i2c/....>

picks the header either from a proper Linux kernel tree or from
I2C_HEADERS.

If not /usr/include/i2c then perhaps /usr/local/include/i2c to be in
sync with the other /usr/local defaults.
