    Subject[PATCH V3 0/4] AT91: replace broken TWI driver i2c-at91.c
    The old driver has two main deficencies:
    i) No repeated start (Sr) condiction is possible, this makes it unusable
    e.g. for most SMBus transfers.
    ii) I/O was done with polling/busy waiting what caused over-/underruns
    even at light system loads and clock speeds.

    The new driver overcomes these deficencies and in addition allows for
    more than one TWI interface.

    A remaining limitation is the fact, that only one repeated start is
    possible (two concatenated messages). This limitation is imposed by
    the hardware. However, this should not be a problem as all common
    i2c-client communication does not rely on more than one repeated start.

    V3: Integrated review comments from Ryan Mallon and Felipe Balbi
    V2: Fixed whitespace issue

    Nikolaus Voss (4):
    drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-at91.c: remove broken driver
    drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-at91.c: add new driver
    G45 TWI: remove open drain setting for twi function gpios
    Add lookup entries for twi_clk for devices with more than one TWI
