The name can be chosen freely, and may be upto 40 characters long. Please
use something descriptive here.
-If used, the id should be a unique ID. The range 0xf000 to 0xffff is
-reserved for local use, and you can use one of those until you start
-distributing the driver, at which time you should contact the i2c authors
-to get your own ID(s). Note that most of the time you don't need an ID
-at all so you can just omit it.

Don't worry about the flags field; just put I2C_DF_NOTIFY into it. This
means that your driver will be notified when new adapters are found.
This is almost always what you want.
