Perhaps, it understood.
Then, we should not call i2c_wait_for_scl() in i2c_bitbang_send_start()
and i2c_bitbang_{read,write}_byte().  He will read the i2c bus.  If he is
called, we should set DIR(INPUT) it ahead of that.
Moreover, it will have to be checked that a variable 'bit' is not SDA in
i2c_bitbang_{read,write}_byte().  Possibly set DIR(OUTPUT).
