Subject[PATCH 19/26] docs: i2c: smbus-protocol: improve I2C Block transactions description
Date
Clarify from the beginning what these transactions are, and specifically
how they differ from the SMBus counterparts, i.e. the lack of a Count byte.

I2C Block Transactions
======================

-The following I2C block transactions are supported by the
-SMBus layer and are described here for completeness.
-They are *NOT* defined by the SMBus specification.
+The following I2C block transactions are similar to the SMBus Block Read
+and Write operations, except these do not have a Count byte. They are
+supported by the SMBus layer and are described here for completeness, but
+they are *NOT* defined by the SMBus specification.

I2C block transactions do not limit the number of bytes transferred
but the SMBus layer places a limit of 32 bytes.
