the patch was created by me on an ancient kernel previously because
there was no dt overlay support. neither i2c1 nor i2c2 are necessary
for BBB to function. as the original author of the patch, I have to
request a NAK. it was specifically done for a power measurement tool
that i had written which runs on BBB (it uses i2c to read INA226
measurement IC)
