Better late (reaction) than never :-)

If you look at the Linux Kernel I2C driver, there also a list of transaction
inside a block is used. And if with a little thinking also "strange" deviced
can be handled, I think it is worth the thinking;

    Ulrich> Second, PMBus ist not I2C, it just uses some basic I2C physical

My mail was only about providing a list of I2C transaction, PMBus is another
subject and should be handled in seperate mail
