Hello Marius,

I'm sorry to hijack this thread. Let's call it a "fork" of the original

I couldn't help but notice you have a VIA southbridge. I'm currently
working on de-duplicating SMBus code, and also have a VIA chipset handy.
I see the SMBus of the 8235 is hellishly similar to the VX900 I'm
working on. I have a patch which adds a generic SMBus implementation for
VIA chipstes here:


If you have the time and patience, could I ask you to pull that patch
and mess with the 8235 early_smbus.c and Makefile.inc to take advantage
of that code?
