I was on vacation. But I am very interested and will review and test
your patches. There have been several attempts to add IRQ support to
i2c-i801 in the past but each time there was a blocker issue which
prevented it from making it into mainline. Hopefully this time we'll
get it there!

I can test on ICH10 easily, and also on ICH7 and ICH3-M if needed.

I think I can test this.

But not this.

I will do what I can with the hardware I have here.
