Well, you got some positive feedback, so that is good.

I think they are your patches, so this is up to you to decide. With
"foster", I meant you keep working on them until everyone is happy. I
haven't looked at the drivers you modify. I can't tell if they can be
converted right away or if they use a lot of I2C API calls, so that it
makes sense to wait until the core is converted. I trust you to decide

Happy hacking,
