i801 driver broken?

most of the PCI drivers in kernel/busses are broken because they
don't have the pci_device_id tables populated.
I'm fixing them one at a time by backporting from kernel 2.5.
I should get to i2c-i801 this weekend - I'm trying to
actualy test each driver before I check it in but
I have to shuffle motherboards, monitors, etc. around to do that.
