There's no need to add a separate driver for a register compatible part,
just add the I2C/SPI IDs to the existing driver.  Otherwise we just
duplicate it redundantly.  Please update this and the comment in the
driver to reflect that.

Otherwise this looks OK, but there's a couple of things that it'd be
nice to update:

Best to remove this, it gets a bit noisy.
