Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 1/2] i2c: smbus: add core function handling SMBus host-notify

Hi Wolfram,

I've taken your comments and prepared a new serie including them.
I'll wait for the conclusion regarding the bindings before pushing it.
I also have an additional patch ready in order to add again the SMBus Alert
support within the stm32f7 driver since it has been removed from the
current serie. Hopefully I can push it once binding is acked so that it
can get merged also in this cycle.

Ok, code is now moved into i2c-smbus.c
In case of the stm32f7 anyway I2C_SMBUS was already selected hence there is no
impact.

I've simplified the index handling as you suggested. The only impact is that
finally we do not consider anymore the I2C_SLAVE_WRITE_REQUESTED event as the
beginning of the transaction since we don't perform the "reset" of the
handling upon this event.

Sanity test on client added at the beginning of i2c_free_slave_host_notify_device
in order to ensure that we do not dereference a null pointer.

Done.
