IIRC it lives on i2c1 - the second bus. We should be able to add it to
the device tree and have the kernel load the driver at boot; this is
working for the rtc device that sits on i2c0.

However, I'm currently hunting down an interrupt issue with the i2c
bus driver when we enable anything more than the first bus. I'll let
you know when we have that working.
