Ok, let's change them all to hex (like in the data sheets).

I don't think so.

for TCA6416 and PCAL9555 the real registers are e.g.:
PCA953X_INPUT           0x00 / 0x01
PCA953X_OUTPUT          0x02 / 0x03

i.e. every address constant is shifted left 1 bit in the 16 bit
accessors.

for PCAL9555 some extended registers:

PCAL953X_OUT_STRENGTH   0x40 / 0x41 / 0x42 / 0x43
PCAL953X_IN_LATCH       0x44 / 0x45

i.e. PCAL953X_IN_LATCH is also simply shifted left by 1 bit
because the extended constants are defined that they fit.

for TCA6424 and PCAL6524:
PCA953X_INPUT           0x00 / 0x01 / 0x02
PCA953X_OUTPUT          0x04 / 0x05 / 0x06

every address is shifted left 2 bits in the 24 bit accessors.

for PCAL6524:
PCAL953X_OUT_STRENGTH   0x40 / 0x41 / 0x42 / 0x43 / 0x44 / 0x45
PCAL953X_IN_LATCH       0x48 / 0x49 / 0x4a

simply shifting left by 2 bits gives wrong result which is this
special case. It is not a general chip property but a mix of chip
bit-width and depends on accessing the first or second bank.

So the full condition to apply this address fix is:

if (24 bit access && second bank access)
        do correction.

and it can be simplified to what I suggest, because the 8/16/24 bit
accessors are already separate functions.

I don't think this can't be hard-coded into flags / compatible string.
