I once introduced this ugly write, because the dibusb-device which uses 
the mt352 is only able to write one reg at a time.

At that time some suggested to place it in dibusb instead of mt352, I 
ignored that, but now I know this is the right way to go.

Did you already commit the change? Because I then have to change dibusb
