Weird, this looks OK in my git log and my inbox, wrong on patchwork.
Perhaps starting an e-mail with a space breaks something? I'll try to
avoid that in the future.

What I mean is "...are not advertised as being I2C but [are advertised]
with different names". Looks equally clear to me, but since it has to be
clear to readers, I'll take your suggestion for v2.

Thanks for all the review work. I'm not going to reply to each e-mail
individually, but each of your suggestions will be taken in v2 unless I
reply differently.
