Yeah, we should decide for this.

However, it's expected following problem with current I2C style.

Suppose A board want to use only I2C0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 7 as I2C and B board want
to use all of I2C channels as I2C. If use one kernel image for A and B,
maybe selected all I2C channels. It can be happened the some problem about
I2C5 and I2C6 on A board when it used for other purpose.

Of course can happen regardless of number of I2C channel, but if more I2C
channels, the probability can be increased.

Anyway I know Mr. Han is preparing I2C patches for it and almost done.
How about continuing discussion for this after submitting it?

I think we have some time that talk about this issue.
