Subject[21/24] i2c: Fix probing of FSC hardware monitoring chips
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

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

commit b1d4b390ea4bb480e65974ce522a04022608a8df upstream.

Some FSC hardware monitoring chips (Syleus at least) doesn't like
quick writes we typically use to probe for I2C chips. Use a regular
byte read instead for the address they live at (0x73). These are the
only known chips living at this address on PC systems.

For clarity, this fix should not be needed for kernels 2.6.30 and
later, as we started instantiating the hwmon devices explicitly based
on DMI data. Still, this fix is valuable in the following two cases:
* Support for recent FSC chips on older kernels. The DMI-based device
instantiation is more difficult to backport than the device support
itself.
* Case where the DMI-based device instantiation fails, whatever the
reason. We fall back to probing in that case, so it should work.

This fixes kernel bug #15634:
