I2C drivers were required to have an I2C device ID table even if were for
devices that would only be registered using a specific firmware interface
(e.g: OF or ACPI).
But commit da10c06a044b ("i2c: Make I2C ID tables non-mandatory for DT'ed
devices") changed the I2C core to relax the requirement and allow drivers
to avoid defining this table.
Unfortunately it only took into account drivers for OF-only devices and
forgot about ACPI-only ones, and this was fixed by commit c64ffff7a9d1
("i2c: core: Allow empty id_table in ACPI case as well").
But the latter didn't update the original comment, so it doesn't reflect
what the code does now.
