That commit has a single-line description of which I don't understand
a single word (unless "wii" is what I think it is, which seems
likely). Could you please explain how that commit relates to this
patch?

It seems like a terrible idea to merge firmware-specific code into the
driver. Is there are reason why of-based platforms can't just pass the
data they need in pdata like everyone else?

Not saying that it necessarily _is_ a terrible idea, but I think the
reasoning behind it needs to be included in the patch description.

This looks a bit backwards. i2c-gpio is a i2c driver which happens to
utilize the gpio framework, not the other way around.

I think "present if the output driver for SCL cannot be turned off" is
more accurate. Might also be worth mentioning that this will prevent
clock stretching from working.

Do these headers provide stubs so non-of platforms won't break?

Would be nice if this could be eliminated on non-of platforms.

If that expression somehow always evaluates to false on non-of
platforms, this might be ok. But please confirm if this is the case;
otherwise, it looks like a pretty large addition to an otherwise very
small driver.

How about a tiny bit of restructuring: Move the block below into a
separate function, which is only called if some constant expression
says that of is enabled. Then you can move the declaration above
either into the if block or into the function, depending on where you
want to do the conditional above.

Is this field always present even when of is disabled?
