It's a PowerMac G5.  During booting I see this:

PowerMac i2c bus pmu 2 registered
PowerMac i2c bus pmu 1 registered
PowerMac i2c bus mac-io 0 registered
i2c i2c-5: i2c-powermac: modalias failure on /ht at 0,f2000000/pci at 1/mac-io at 7/i2c at 18000/deq at 6a
i2c i2c-5: i2c-powermac: invalid reg on /ht at 0,f2000000/pci at 1/mac-io at 7/i2c at 18000/i2c-modem
PowerMac i2c bus u3 1 registered
i2c i2c-6: i2c-powermac: modalias failure on /u3 at 0,f8000000/i2c at f8001000/cereal at 1c0
PowerMac i2c bus u3 0 registered

The deq node has no compatible, perhaps the modalias can be constructed
out of the name instead?
