@aabadie: I think if we drop the `params` in the init callback, it will no longer be possible to add multiple external EEPROM devices that are using the same driver, without some dark magic. Assume the init function of an external driver is only called with the device handle to initialize. With what parameters should it initialize that device handle?

If there is only one device of that kind, it is clear. But RIOT policy is to allow multiple devices of a kind. I don't see how this could work.
