The piix4 driver applies to so many chips and has been around for such a long time, that I don't know if this kind of change is safe to make. Do you think it's safe to assume that all the implementations that use this driver can handle the 3byte block writes?

I've added Jean to the CC list to get the piix4 maintainer's perspective.

Thanks, will fix this.

Again, I don't know if it's safe to assume that the i2c controllers can do this and would appreciate comments.

Thanks for your review!
