I'd prefer if you just disallow the case where pdata and DT have conflicting
information. We don't seem to have a clear rule that is enforced over the
kernel, so I don't think we can rely on either one taking precedence over
the other in general.

In this particular case, we don't have a single board file providing a
struct nmk_i2c_controller definition for platform data, so the best way
to handle this IMHO is to remove the header file with the platform
data definition, and just encode the defaults in the driver.
