That would work on runtime but we also need to initialize this
somehow.  The way it was done today on non-dt platforms is via platform
device variants, i.e. (taken from 3rd patch):

@@ -1128,6 +1161,9 @@ static struct platform_device_id s3c24xx_driver_ids[] = {
 	}, {
 		.name		= "s3c2440-i2c",
 		.driver_data	= TYPE_S3C2440,
+	}, {
+		.name		= "s3c2440-hdmiphy-i2c",
+		.driver_data	= TYPE_S3C2440 | FLAG_HDMIPHY | FLAG_NO_GPIO,

Ability to address above scenario was sole motivation for this change.
Without it one would need either need separate type (e.g. 
TYPE_S3C2440_HDMIPHY) or setting flags based just on device name.

Introducing separate type (TYPE_S3C2440_HDMIPHY) has been our original
attempt to solve this issue.  However, this required adding explicit
checks to driver code all over the place (if (type == S3C2400 ||
type == S3c2440_HDMIPHY).

Thus, I felt that sqeezing quirks into type is a bit cleaner approach.
