Thanks!

The patch is short, it's understandable and it fixes the problem.
I prefere to apply this patch as is.

I see some inconsistency in drivers/i2c/i2c.c.
We have i2c_master_send() and i2c_write_reg() functions.
These functions are intended to make similar work but they are
written in very different style. I suppose that we can rewrite
i2c_master_send() (e.g. drop FIXME) and make i2c_write_reg()
work on top of i2c_master_send(). Any comments?
