Subject[patch 13/50] i2c-nforce2: Disable the second SMBus channel on the DFI Lanparty NF4 Expert
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------

From: Jean Delvare <khali@linux-fr.org>

commit 08851d6eb4eeb0894f4d095dfdf8ab61c435ad57 in upstream

There is a strange chip at 0x2e on the second SMBus channel of the
DFI Lanparty NF4 Expert motherboard. Accessing the chip reboots the
system. As there's nothing interesting on this SMBus channel, the
easiest and safest thing to do is to disable it on that board.

This is a better fix to bug #5889 than the it87 driver update that was
done originally:
