Thanks for the report. We are working on a large rewrite of the i2c
layer (well, Kyösti Mälkki is) so this is not the time for me to mess up
with IBM detection code. What's more, we are still missing some
information to do it correctly.

So, my advice is: if you don't need 2.7.0 and if 2.6.5 was working for
you, stick to this version.

We'll let you know (I hope I won't forget) if we need some help from
you. Thanks.
