Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!

+Description
+-----------
+
+The Savage4 chips contain two I2C interfaces (aka a I2C 'master' or
+'host').
+
+The first interface is used for DDC (Data Display Channel) which is a
+serial channel through the VGA monitor connector to a DDC-compliant
+monitor. This interface is defined by the Video Electronics Standards
+Association (VESA). The standards are available for purchase at
+http://www.vesa.org . The second interface is a general-purpose I2C bus.
+
+Usefull for gaining access to the TV Encoder chips.
