This patch will not do what you want. It will issue that warning for
almost every probed chip.

I agree that the idea is nice, but you have to restructure probing for
this to work well. Basically, you can't probe for specific chips
anymore, but you have to change the probing routines to return the chip
ID they found and compare them centrally. This not only decreases
probing time, it also increases the chance to spot unsupported chips.
