Hi Tomas,

Thanks for the patch. Looks mostly fine, but this needs fixing:

Each of the messages should start with a (repeated) start bit and only
the last message should be followed by a stop bit. By separating the
full message into segments and pushing each segment into EFI separately
you would instead send a stop bit after each segment, see the comment

/// I2C device request
/// The EFI_I2C_REQUEST_PACKET describes a single I2C transaction.  The
/// transaction starts with a start bit followed by the first operation
/// in the operation array.  Subsequent operations are separated with
/// repeated start bits and the last operation is followed by a stop bit
/// which concludes the transaction.  Each operation is described by one

Instead you have to compile all nmsgs into a single EFI_I2C_REQUEST_PACKET
and push it into EFI as a single request.
