Well, I can't see any assembly code in i2c-algo-biths.c, so it is most
likely a compiler problem. Anyway, I'm not even sure i2c-algo-biths is
usable, so who cares...

Do you mean that the same system on which we failed so hard to find the
adm1026 chip some times ago now just works, without any additional
effort needed. Wow.

I'm glad you finally made it, although it doesn't really explain
anything. And thanks for the hat again ;)
