[PATCH v4 REPOST 2/5] of: Add nvidia, controller-id property to Tegra I2C bindings

From: Mikko Perttunen <mperttunen at nvidia.com>

Sometimes, hardware blocks want to issue requests to devices
connected to I2C buses by itself. In such case, the bus the
target device resides on must be configured into a register.
For this purpose, each I2C controller has a defined ID known
by the hardware. Add a property for these IDs to the device tree
bindings, so that drivers can know what ID to write to a hardware
register when configuring a block that sends I2C messages autonomously.
