Ah, I see.
"mlx5" is not listed explicitly, because it is not included in this patchset.
In various previous discussions in this thread, mlx5 subfunction use case is described that justifies the existence of the bus.
I will be happy to update this documentation once mlx5 subfunction will be part of kernel so that grep actually shows valid output.
(waiting to post them as it uses auxiliary bus :-)).
