Sounds good.  If I don't get any feedback (positive or negative) in
the next few days I'll resend with your Tested-by.

It is not strictly needed, but from a usability standpoint it is
terribly helpful.  It serves to make it obvious to someone looking at
the device that it's _not_ an i2c bus associated with the main SoC.
If you don't include a number I believe that the i2c core will pick
the first available number.

It seems worth it to save a few people a few hours of head scratching.

...but this is your dts and if you think it's a terrible idea then
I'll remove it.  It looks to be less critical on tegra than it is on
exynos (which has ~9 i2c busses, they are numbered in the user manual,
and if you have one set to "disable" in the dts then the tunnel will
end up getting a very confusing number).
