If I understand the code in sys/dev/i2c correctly then you'll want to
attach an iic which may be an i2c bus or an smbus ( what's the real
difference anyway, besides some additional commands? )
If your smbus controller is too intelligent and doesn't let you mess
with the bus signals directly you may want to implement only
iic_acquire_bus(), iic_release_bus() and iic_exec(), at least that's
what ki2c on macppc does.
