This is a great piece of news :) We are really looking for driver
porters.

I will review your code this evening or tomorrow. Did you look at and
follow the porting guidelines (Documentation/i2c/porting-clients) or
not? If not, please take some time to read it, apply any change needed
to you code and submit it again for review. Else, your work is probably
over and all you have to do now is be patient until I can review your
code and send it to Greg KH for inclusion into Linux 2.6.3.

Thanks a lot :)
