Actually, you may want to transfer 1 byte registers using the block
method (if your device only support block transfers). This depends on
the device being accessed and what it supports, but I'm not sure we can
assume 1 byte registers will always be transferred using SMBUS byte
transfers.

The API is correct because the i2c_smbus_write_i2c_block does not modify
the data pointer.
Just removing the const keyword in the cast should be enough, because
you can safely cast a non const pointer to a const one.

As explained earlier, this depends on the device being accessed, but it
might be used for smaller transfers (1 or 2 bytes).

Thanks for the review.

Best Regards,
