What if we update the core to not register another irq handler if the
"smbus_alert" and main irq are the same?

I think it could work. However, while trying to make a proof-of-concept,
I found that irq descriptions in the generic i2c binding document are
probably mixed up. And before fixing that, I'd like to get HostNotify
done first.

Makes sense?
