Yes, more than one of these can be active at the same time...
What really needs to happen is iic to be taught about the resource
which is chip id... then some of the problems of identify and multiple
probes can go away...
Currently there is no code in the iicbus to prevent two chips from
attaching to the same i2c bus address causing possible problems...
If someone is interested in learning some newbus/resource code, I can
provide some pointers on what the general design should look like...
/me who fought with the problem of multiple probing i2c devices when
writing the Zoran driver.
