Argh, stoopid me ... and I thought I had tested it .... just
on the wrong machine. Oh well try this and let me know:

powerpc/windfarm: Fix crash on SMU based machine after i2c conversion

We no longer get the device node in platform_data but instead
where it belongs in struct device, so get it from there instead
of blowing up.
