[avoid code duplication in {adv7170/adv7175/bt819/saa7111/saa7185}_write_block]

These functions differ only in:

struct XXX *encoder = i2c_get_clientdata(client);
do {
block_data[msg.len++] =
encoder->reg[reg++] = data[1];
if ((ret =
XXX_write(client, reg, *data++)) < 0)

Make i2c_get_clientdata() return a generic container struct which
provides instance specific methods to retrieve the "reg" member and
the XXX_write() function. Init these in XXX_detect_client() just
before i2c_set_clientdata() and it is done.

Patches that remove code used to make Penguin #0 happy. We want an happy
Penguin #0, don't we ? :o)

Your choice. As a maintainer, you can say "It would be great. Volunteer
anyone ?" and see voluteer appearing.

Ok, I'll check and
try to kill one or two simple, self-contained, tasks.
