I will change it then. Do you have any suggestion for the naming to keep 
it short?

I might be wrong but last I2C command is 0x20 and I tried to let some 
free space in case they need.
Also I think that make sense I2C and I3C share the same 'magic number'.

BTW, in ioctl-numbers documentation there is no reference for code 0x07.
