Hm... this should be controlled by the PIXIS' BRDCFG0's I2CSPAN and
SERSEL bits:

0: I2C1 and I2C2 buses are separated. System (boot sequencer EEPROM)
   is on I2C1, all others are on I2C2. MPC8610 SPI functions cannot be used.
1: I2C1 and I2C2 are bridged. MPC8610 SPI functions may be used. All I2C
   devices may be accessed via I2C1 controller and/or I2C2 (I2C2 depends on
   SERSEL setting).
