Hmm, I just noticed that you basically added a copy of existing
driver with small changes to support OF while keeping OCP one.
Why not just add OF support to the existing code (under some ifdef),
and then remove OCP support as soon as ppc -> powerpc transition is
finished? Why have two almost identical code in the tree?
I also personally don't like this _iic -> _of name change (you
removed peripheral name and added something which has nothing to do
with iic, I never heard of OF peripheral in 4xx chips). Whether you
use OCP or OF to pass a little information is quite irrelevant to the
iic driver operation.
If you insist on this approach, please add yourself as a maintainer of
this code, because I'm not going to support two identical copies of my
code in the kernel tree.
