Do not force the I2C slave address by default. It's only fair to let the
users know that they're doing something wrong. They can insist by using
the new -f option.

    55.SH SYNOPSIS 
    66.B i2cset 
     7.RB [ -f ] 
    78.RB [ -y ]

    2526Display the version and exit. 
     27.TP 
     28.B -f 
     29Force access to the device even if it is already busy. By default, i2cset 
     30will refuse to access a device which is already under the control of a 
     31kernel driver. Using this flag is dangerous, it can seriously confuse the 
     32kernel driver in question. It can also cause i2cset to silently write to 
     33the wrong register. So use at your own risk and only if you know what 
     34you're doing.
