Hmm, if the driver might be probed without device tree node,
there is:
   of_id = of_match_device(rn5t618_of_match, &i2c->dev);
        if (!of_id) {
                dev_err(&i2c->dev, "Failed to find matching DT ID\n");
                return -EINVAL;
        }

so nothing will be registered at all. So the only reasons I see the
driver might be bound to unsupported devices could be:
- a bug in of_match_device() 
- nonsense in rn5t618_of_match (I think that are well-thought entries)

Andreas
