Done for both patches.

Fixed. It's been a long time since I wrote most of this code...

I don't think it supports them, and even if it did, I don't know how
to test them since I don't have an obvious i2c slave device to poke at
with them. I have a friend with logic analyzers, though...

It could make the legacy eeprom driver try to bind to the bus if it's
loaded. I improved the comment.

Not obviously safe to probe, and not really useful even if we could do
it. Comment updated.

No. I removed that.

The core handles it. I added a comment.
