Not a good one.
It was a long time ago, but I think I probably did it because of the need to
set the 'irq' to a non-constant.  I didn't really understand all the code at
the time and probably copied something from somewhere without thinking it

It certainly looks as though it should be fine to leave them in
gta04_i2c2_boardinfo, just as long as the irq line is set properly before
omap_register_i2c_bus() is called.
