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-parport-light
+Author: Jean Delvare <khali@linux-fr.org>
+This driver is a light version of i2c-parport. It doesn't depend
+on the parport driver, and uses direct I/O access instead. This might be
+prefered on embedded systems where wasting memory for the clean but heavy
+parport handling is not an option. The drawback is a reduced portability
+and the impossibility to daisy-chain other parallel port devices.
+Please see i2c-parport for documentation.
