For now it's a single regression in the PCIe driver and it's actually
not a regression, but a PCIe driver bug that needs to be fixed. The I2C
part should be okay.

By reverting the I2C patch, we're back to the PCIe bug being papered
over and I don't like this. Let's just fix the PCIe driver and the
problem is gone.. it needs to be fixed anyways.
