Thanks.  I don't think I'll write a driver for it (I don't personally
need one) but that datasheet is more useful than the previous one.

In case you're wondering, I wanted to see if this device supported any
SMBus block transactions (as a way for me to test a *bus* driver).  I
guess not though... oh well.

Thanks and regards,
