From: "corentin.labbe" <>

The i2c-ali1535 driver don't work on SPARC, this is because it assumes that 
ioport address are 16bits wide (address stored with an unsigned short).
But on SPARC arch, ioports are mapped in memory and so are stored with an 
unsigned long.

This patch corrects this by using pci_resource_start for getting IOMEM base 
address, then reading the SMBBA of the i2c busse and using together for I/O 

I like to thanks Jean DELVARE for reviewing of my patch.

Corentin, I rebased your patch so that it applies on top of the fix I
just sent. I also turned one dev_info into dev_dbg, and relaxed the
check on the PCI resource flags: I have no idea if the resource is
always defined, in particular on x86, and as it will be difficult to
find testers, I want to play it safe and guarantee that the driver will
behave the same way it used to before your patch.

Corentin, Pierre-Yves, please test this version of the patch on top of
the fix I just sent, and confirm that it works for you.

If anybody is using the i2c-ali1535 driver on x86, please test too and
report. I can provide a standalone driver if needed.
