In PECI bus, there is one and only bus host (adapter) and multiple
clients on a PECI bus, and PECI spec doesn't allow multiple originators
so only the host device can originate message. In this implementation,
all message transactions on a bus from client driver modules and user
space will be serialized well in the PECI core bus driver so bus
occupation and traffic arbitration will be managed well in the PECI core
bus driver even in case of a bus has 2 client drivers at the same
address. I'm sure that this implementation doesn't make that kind of
problem to OS.

Thanks,
