My pleasure, and thank you for the feedback!

The ti948 device is situated inside the housing of the LCD
panel. The ti949 is a normal i2c device on the system i2c
bus. In order for the ti948 to appear on the system's i2c
bus, the ti949 must be powered up and configured.

The panel is connected to the system via the FPD-Link III.
If a connector for the wire to the display is unplugged and
re-inserted, then the ti948 will drop out and come back.

Application note AN-2173, "I2C Communication Over
FPD-LinkIII with Bidirectional Control Channel" describes
this:

http://www.ti.com/lit/an/snla131a/snla131a.pdf

Perhaps I need to expand the commit message to explain this?

Alternatively is there a more standard way of dealing with
remotely connected i2c devices?
