I'm actually surprised that this is preferred. Jeremy mentioned something
similar, but I guess I just don't like the idea of finding devices in weird
places in the tree. Then again, if we can't trust the DT we're in bigger
trouble than erroneous flash nodes =).

If we really just want to find compatible nodes anywhere, let's simplify i2c
and pdev_init into one function and make that behavior consistent with this
new patch.
