-Kernel driver i2c-parport
-
-Author: Jean Delvare <khali@linux-fr.org>
-
-This is a unified driver for several i2c-over-parallel-port adapters,
-such as the ones made by Philips, Velleman or ELV. This driver is
-meant as a replacement for the older, individual drivers:
- * i2c-philips-par
- * i2c-elv
- * i2c-velleman
- * video/i2c-parport (NOT the same as this one, dedicated to home brew
- teletext adapters)
-
-It currently supports the following devices:
- * (type=0) Philips adapter
- * (type=1) home brew teletext adapter
- * (type=2) Velleman K8000 adapter
- * (type=3) ELV adapter
- * (type=4) Analog Devices ADM1032 evaluation board
- * (type=5) Analog Devices evaluation boards: ADM1025, ADM1030, ADM1031
- * (type=6) Barco LPT->DVI (K5800236) adapter
- * (type=7) One For All JP1 parallel port adapter
-
-These devices use different pinout configurations, so you have to tell
-the driver what you have, using the type module parameter. There is no
-way to autodetect the devices. Support for different pinout configurations
-can be easily added when needed.
-
-Earlier kernels defaulted to type=0 (Philips). But now, if the type
-parameter is missing, the driver will simply fail to initialize.
-
-SMBus alert support is available on adapters which have this line properly
-connected to the parallel port's interrupt pin.

-Building your own adapter
--------------------------
-
-If you want to build you own i2c-over-parallel-port adapter, here is
-a sample electronics schema (credits go to Sylvain Munaut):

-Remarks:
- - This is the exact pinout and electronics used on the Analog Devices
- evaluation boards.

- - All inverters -o |- must be 74HC05, they must be open collector output.
- \|
- - All resitors are 10k.
- - Pins 18-25 of the parallel port connected to GND.
- - Pins 4-9 (D2-D7) could be used as VDD is the driver drives them high.
- The ADM1032 evaluation board uses D4-D7. Beware that the amount of
- current you can draw from the parallel port is limited. Also note that
- all connected lines MUST BE driven at the same state, else you'll short
- circuit the output buffers! So plugging the I2C adapter after loading
- the i2c-parport module might be a good safety since data line state
- prior to init may be unknown.
- - This is 5V!
- - Obviously you cannot read SCL (so it's not really standard-compliant).
- Pretty easy to add, just copy the SDA part and use another input pin.
- That would give (ELV compatible pinout):

-If possible, you should use the same pinout configuration as existing
-adapters do, so you won't even have to change the code.

-Similar (but different) drivers
--------------------------------
-
-This driver is NOT the same as the i2c-pport driver found in the i2c
-package. The i2c-pport driver makes use of modern parallel port features so
-that you don't need additional electronics. It has other restrictions
-however, and was not ported to Linux 2.6 (yet).
-
-This driver is also NOT the same as the i2c-pcf-epp driver found in the
-lm_sensors package. The i2c-pcf-epp driver doesn't use the parallel port as
-an I2C bus directly. Instead, it uses it to control an external I2C bus
-master. That driver was not ported to Linux 2.6 (yet) either.

-Legacy documentation for Velleman adapter
------------------------------------------
-
-Useful links:
-Velleman http://www.velleman.be/
-Velleman K8000 Howto http://howto.htlw16.ac.at/k8000-howto.html
-
-The project has lead to new libs for the Velleman K8000 and K8005:
- LIBK8000 v1.99.1 and LIBK8005 v0.21
-With these libs, you can control the K8000 interface card and the K8005
-stepper motor card with the simple commands which are in the original
-Velleman software, like SetIOchannel, ReadADchannel, SendStepCCWFull and
-many more, using /dev/velleman.

-One For All JP1 parallel port adapter
--------------------------------------
-
-The JP1 project revolves around a set of remote controls which expose
-the I2C bus their internal configuration EEPROM lives on via a 6 pin
-jumper in the battery compartment. More details can be found at:
