For consistency, how about we call this occ_p8_i2c.c? The other files
have the machine name second.

Mention that this driver is for the BMC (or just "service processor"),
and is not useful in the Power8 kernel.

I'm trying to think of a better prefix than PPC. PPC means much more
than Power8 and Power9, which is what we mean. It's also confusing as
we don't run this on any PowerPC machine - it's for an ARM chip.

I think these are scom addresses? Please indicate that so we don't get
them confused with i2c.

Or are they scom operations?

The functions can be static.
