Subject: Why to I2c drivers not autoload like other PCI devices?
Date: Wed, 3 Jan 2007 16:50:20 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070103165020.4b277ebc@freekitty> (raw)

Is there some missing magic (udev rule?) that keeps i2c device modules
from loading? For example: the Intel i2c-i801 module ought to get loaded
automatically on boot up since it has a set of PCI id's that generate
the necessary module aliases. It would be better if I2C device's autoloaded
like other PCI devices.
