Hi Antti,

>> Yes. Currently, MC44S803 uses a READ in mc44s80x_get_devid() to check the ID register.
>> According to the spec from freescale, a READ needs to be a seperate I2c transaction,
>> because the STOP bit is used to latch the address registers. That's the reason why a
>> dedicated READ support is needed (most other tuners use a WRITE / READ combined I2c
>> transaction instead).

there is documentation for this tuner at the freescale web page:
