As I'm using a custom kernel, I have set those options:

	device smbus
	device iicbus
	device iicsmb
	device iicbb
	device iic

It's probably possible to achieve the same goal using
loadable modules via /boot/loader.conf. There are some
"moving parts" involved to get the whole thing working,
and the default installation does not reflect this. :-)
