And shouldn't be increased IMHO. And could even be lowered if we support
writing to eeproms.

In this case, we can exclude it from sensors.

Give it a look and try and tell me what you think about it.

I finally chose a generic slices method, as you can see. I too think
it's better than a Vaio- or EDID- or whatever-oriented partitioning.
