i2c-algo-bit: Let user test buses without failing
Always failing to register I2C buses when the line testing fails is a little harsh. While such a failure is definitely a bug in the driver that exposes the affected I2C bus, things may still work fine if the missing initialization steps are done later, before the I2C bus is used. So it seems a better debugging tool to just report the test failure by default. I introduce bit_test=2 if anyone really misses the original behavior of bit_test=1.
