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-ali1563
+
+Supported adapters:
+ * Acer Labs, Inc. ALI 1563 (south bridge)
+ Datasheet: Now under NDA
+ http://www.ali.com.tw/eng/support/datasheet_request.php
+
+Author: Patrick Mochel <mochel@digitalimplant.org>
+
+Description
+-----------
+
+This is the driver for the SMB Host controller on Acer Labs Inc. (ALI)
+M1563 South Bridge.
+
+For an overview of these chips see http://www.acerlabs.com
+
+The M1563 southbridge is deceptively similar to the M1533, with a few
+notable exceptions. One of those happens to be the fact they upgraded the
+i2c core to be SMBus 2.0 compliant, and happens to be almost identical to
+the i2c controller found in the Intel 801 south bridges.
+
+Features
+--------
+
+This driver controls the SMB Host only. This driver does not use
+interrupts.
