     I2C is a two-wire bus developed by Philips used for connecting integrated
     circuits.  It is commonly used for connecting devices such as EEPROMs,
     temperature sensors, fan controllers, real-time clocks, tuners, and other
     types of integrated circuits.

     The iic driver provides a uniform programming interface layer between I2C
     master controllers and various I2C slave devices.  Each I2C master con-
     troller attaches an iic framework; several slave devices can then be
     attached to the iic bus.

     All I2C slave devices are uniquely identified by the address on the bus.
     The master accesses a particular slave device using its address.  Devices
     are found on the bus using a sophisticated scanning routine which
     attempts to identify commonly available devices.  On other machines (such
     as sparc64 and macppc) where the machine ROM supplies a list of I2C
     devices, that list is used instead.

     System Management Bus (SMBus) protocol is also supported by emulating it
     with the I2C commands.

     The I2C framework first appeared in NetBSD 2.0.  OpenBSD support was
     added in OpenBSD 3.6.  I2C bus scanning was added in OpenBSD 3.9.

     The I2C framework was written by Steve C. Woodford and Jason R. Thorpe
     for NetBSD and then ported to OpenBSD by Alexander Yurchenko
