Ah, now I remember that the warning is spurious, have just sent a
patch to avoid it with you on Cc ("ARM: dts: rockchip: add i2c-bus
subnode to edp").

Could you please test it out?

Regarding why a 7th I2C adapter is being registered, that's the one
used by the eDP controller, and the code registering it is DRM core
when the analogix driver calls drm_dp_aux_register.

Regarding your problem with DRM not loading properly, you would need
to attach more content from dmesg as the lines you attached doesn't
seem related to it. You can get more debug logs from DRM by booting
with this kernel parameter:
