Adding I2C devices for embedded 4.9.89 linux


Having trouble talking to new devices. From user space:
Code:
 const char *i2cDevice1 = "/dev/i2c-1";
 int i2cAddr = 0x59;
 int fdI2c1 = open(i2cDevice1, O_RDWR); /* this works */
 if (ioctl(fdI2c1, I2C_SLAVE, i2cAddr) < 0) {
    printf("I2C Error 2. Bye.\n");
    return 0;
 }                                      /* this works */
 if (write(fdI2c1, buf, 2) != 2) {
    printf("I2C Error 3. Bye.\n");
    return 0;
  }                                     /* this FAILS */
Tried simply tweaking the Device Tree Source (.dts file) in linux-4.9.89/arch/arm/boot/dts by adding max3107 block below:
Code:
&i2c2 { 
        clock-frequency = <400000>;
        max3107@58 {
                      compatible = "maxim, 3107";
                      reg = <0x58>;
                   };
};
and rebuilt kernel and dtb. This did not seem to do anything since I still get the same error from my code and the i2cdetect utility still doesn't see a device 0x59.

Code:
# i2cdetect -y -r 1
     0  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  a  b  c  d  e  f
