SubjectRe: [PATCH 8/8 v3] i2c: i801: enable irq for byte_by_byte transactions

Two issues remaining:

The "else" is wrong. When count == 0, you receive two bytes from the
controller: the block length in SMBHSTDAT0 and the first data byte in
SMBBLKDAT. So the code flow must fall through.

This is lacking a boundary check. As I reported in an earlier review,
you shouldn't assume that the hardware will only emit the number of
interrupts you are expecting. If for any reason (crazy hardware or
driver bug) you get more interrupts than expected, you don't want to
overflow priv->data[].

The rest looks OK.
