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!

+Kernel driver i2c-savage4
+
+Supported adapters:
+ * Savage4

+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 DDC bus is not yet supported because its register
+is not directly memory-mapped.
+
+The second interface is a general-purpose I2C bus. This is the only
+interface supported by the driver at the moment.
