I have included a patch from Todd Davis at Intel that adds this function to the I2C driver. I believe Todd has been working on getting this in through the I2C driver writers, although the patch is fairly non-intrusive.

However, I have no real way to test this patch.

I can only confirm that it fixes the compilation...

The patch to i2c-core.c is strange:

And dumb, and incorrect :(

Wrong as in: "This code will not work" or wrong as in: "don't export the variable and the function", or both? I certainly agree that exporting both is wrong, there should really be two inline functions with only the variable exported, or only functions exported and the variable hidden. That's an easy change.

However, if the code does not work, that is a bigger deal. I'm fairly sure it works in some cases, but not sure about all.

The patch I posted is for 2.6, BTW.
