Question on I2C driver development for Motorola chips

I'm an engineer working in Motorola. I have a 'working' I2C driver for the new chip MPC8540/MPC8560 and I'm eager to add this driver to your CVS, and I hope it can be pushed to the linux kernel in the near future.

I noticed a MPC8245 I2C driver is under development by Mike Primm from your newdriver webpage(, and I'm very interested in his progress, however there is no way for me to reach him(there is no email address :( ). Additionally, there is another Linux I2C driver for MPC824x( Include my driver, all of us are trying to do the same thing because MPC8540/MPC8560/MPC824x/MPC107 are having the similar I2C design. I would like to find a way to provide a generic I2C for all these Motorola chips.

I'm also interested in getting the current Motorola 8xx I2C driver a new name if possible, because that driver can also be shared by 8xx/82xx/83xx(forthcoming new chip), i.e. any Motorola chip with a CPM(Communication Process Module) part on it.

Thanks a lot for your helps.
