i2c-piix4: Support AMD auxiliary SMBus controller
Some AMD chipsets, such as the SP5100, have an auxiliary SMBus controller with a second set of registers. This patch adds support for this auxiliary controller. Tested on ASUS KCMA-D8 motherboard.

The ServerWorks Southbridges, the Intel 440MX, and the Victory66 are
identical to the PIIX4 in I2C/SMBus support.
+The AMD SB700 and SP5100 chipsets implement two PIIX4-compatible SMBus
+controllers. If your BIOS initializes the secondary controller, it will
+be detected by this driver as an "Auxiliary SMBus Host Controller".
+
If you own Force CPCI735 motherboard or other OSB4 based systems you may need
to change the SMBus Interrupt Select register so the SMBus controller uses
the SMI mode.
