     11Though you may disagree about whose fault this is, fact is that seemingly 
     12the Thinkpad can become corrupted even when only reading information from 
     13the i2c/SMBus. Be assured that we never, ever write any information to 
     14the bus while scanning(*), and that no halfway sane client implementation 
     15should change its internal state, not to mention overwrite system-critical 
     16information.

     22(*) Actually, we do write some information to the bus, but only as specified 
     23    in the i2c/SMBus protocol to select a certain chip address and to 
     24    start/stop i2c transactions.
