Agreed, unfortunately until the I2C and SPI core are changed to properly
report OF modaliases, we will have to keep adding these duplicated IDs.

And changing the I2C and SPI core isn't trivial since it could break a
lot of drivers that rely on a platform modalias being reported (i.e: no
OF device IDs present in the drivers even when are registered via DT).
