i2c: Check for address validity on client registration
Do basic address validity checks when a client is being registered. We already had checks in place for devices which are being detected, but not for devices which are simply instantiated. This is a very basic check. We don't want to do strict checking here because some devices are known to infringe the I2C address constraints (e.g. IR receivers at 7-bit address 0x7a while this value is supposedly reserved for 10-bit addresses.) So we assume the caller knows what it is doing. Signed-off-by: Jean Delvare <khali@linux-fr.org> Cc: Matthieu Castet <castet.matthieu@free.fr>
