  12Description
  13-----------
  14
  15This driver provides connects a NXP SC18IS602/603 I2C-bus to SPI bridge to the
  16kernel's SPI core subsystem.
  17
  18The driver does not probe for supported chips, since the SI18IS602/603 does not
  19support Chip ID registers. You will have to instantiate the devices explicitly.
  20Please see Documentation/i2c/instantiating-devices for details.

  23Usage Notes
  24-----------
  25
  26This driver requires the I2C adapter driver to support raw I2C messages. I2C
  27adapter drivers which can only handle the SMBus protocol are not supported.
  28
  29The maximum SPI message size supported by SC18IS602/603 is 200 bytes. Attempts
  30to initiate longer transfers will fail with -EINVAL. EEPROM read operations and
  31similar large accesses have to be split into multiple chunks of no more than
  32200 bytes per SPI message (128 bytes of data per message is recommended). This
  33means that programs such as "cp" or "od", which automatically use large block
  34sizes to access a device, can not be used directly to read data from EEPROM.
  35Programs such as dd, where the block size can be specified, should be used
  36instead.
