SubjectRe: [PATCH 07/10] i2c: Add driver for AD242x bus controller
Hi Luca,

thanks for the review!

Note that it is by far the standard case that all messages in a transfer
have the same client address (99,999%?). But technically, this is not a
requirement and the repeated start on the bus is totally independent of
the addresses used. It is just a master wanting to send without being
interrupted by another master.
