Almost perfect, just a minor nit:

Please be more consistent with the spelling. You've got all of "Tegra",
"tegra", "I2C" and "i2c" in the commit message. "Tegra" and "I2C" are
the correct ones.

And to clarify, it's fine to keep the lower-case spellings in the
subject because that serves as a sort of tag. In prose, always use the
correct spelling.

With that fixed:
