0x86 >> 1 is actually 0x43, not 0x34. 0x34 is the address for the audio
part of the device:

#define TLV320_ADDRESS 0x34

The original code was a little messy and used the same i2c_client for
both parts, changing the address on the fly.

That being said, I think you are probably right, the 7-bit device's
address is probably 0x43 for video. And now that we mention that,
probably 0x34 for audio is incorrect as well. "TLV320" suggests some
incarnation of the TI TLV320 series, many of which are already
supported in the kernel, and all I've seen had address 0x18, 0x19, 0x1a
or 0x1b. Given that 0x34 >> 1 is 0x1a... it's a good hint that 0x34
wasn't a 7-bit address value, right?

I'll change the addresses to 0x43 for video and 0x1a for audio. Updated
patch coming.

Could be. But then this means that the driver as it stands in the
kernel today, doesn't work. Which, in a way, is good news, as it means
I can push my changes immediately. Even if I got the conversion wrong,
it won't be more broken than it already was ;)
