Yeah, there are a few downsides and I agree that the whole i2c subsystem
should be "converted" at the same time, probably directly after some
future rc1. Feel free to use this patch (or an adjusted version) if/when
the time comes, or poke me and I'll redo it.
In other words, I'm not super-committed to this patch, and will just drop
it for now...
