I will update the title to say 'add eeprom "size" property' in the next version.

This eeprom "size" property is optional for at24 driver, 
In the at24 driver size information is passed as part of the i2c_device_id' 
driver_data during initial probe. If you want to use an existing ID for an 
eeprom for a different size, there is no way to override it currently. 
By introducing an optional size device property, we can reuse IDs for chips of
different sizes.

This is also consistent with the implementation in the at25 driver.
