i2c: Check for address business before creating clients

We check for address business in i2c_probe_address(),
i2c_detect_address() and i2c_new_probed_device(), but this isn't
sufficient. Drivers can call i2c_attach_client() and
i2c_new_device() on any address, so we must check the address there
as well.

This fixes bug #11239:
