Well, whether or not a device interrupts is actually a very
platform-specific thing... board-dependent code would have to handle
that, because it depends greatly on how the devices are wired up on the
But for the case of "a separate i2c bus" talking to "temperature
sensors and fans"... of course the new code supports that. (It's
certainly one of the applications I need it for...)
