[PATCH v2 3/4] dt-bindings: i2c-stm32: add SMBus Alert bindings

Add a new binding of the i2c-stm32f7 driver to enable the handling
of the SMBUS-Alert.

The I2C/SMBUS framework already provides a mechanism to enable SMBus-Alert
by naming an IRQ line "smbus_alert". However, on stm32, the SMBus-Alert is
part of the i2c IRQ. Using the smbus_alert naming here would lead to having
2 handlers (the handler of the driver and the smbus_alert handler
from I2C/SMBUS framework) on the unique i2c IRQ of the stm32. Meaning that
the smbus_alert handler would get called for all IRQ generated by the stm32
I2C controller.

For that reason, the smbus_alert IRQ naming cannot be used and a dedicated
binding is introduced.
