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
+-----------
+
+i2c-viapro is a true SMBus host driver for motherboards with one of the
+supported VIA southbridges.
+
+Your lspci -n listing must show one of these :
+
+ device 1106:3050 (VT82C596 function 3)
+ device 1106:3051 (VT82C596 function 3)
+ device 1106:3057 (VT82C686 function 4)
+ device 1106:3074 (VT8233)
+ device 1106:3147 (VT8233A)
+ device 1106:8235 (VT8231)
+ devide 1106:3177 (VT8235)
+ devide 1106:3227 (VT8237)
+
+If none of these show up, you should look in the BIOS for settings like
+enable ACPI / SMBus or even USB.
