SubjectRe: [RFC 0/4] Add support for the Gateworks System Controller
Hi Tim

Cool. I would say this is done right.

How about writing an i2c bus driver which sits directly on top of
another i2c bus? Basically a one port i2c mux.

The current mux code does not seem to directly allow it, since it
calls i2c_transfer() directly on the parent, where as you want it to
call your own i2c_transfer function. But maybe you could expended the
core mux code to allow the i2c_mux_core structure to contain a transfer
function?
