Linux I2C slave EEPROM backend
by Wolfram Sang <> in 2014-20
This backend simulates an EEPROM on the connected I2C bus. Its memory contents
can be accessed from userspace via this file located in sysfs::
The following types are available: 24c02, 24c32, 24c64, and 24c512. Read-only
variants are also supported. The name needed for instantiating has the form
'slave-<type>[ro]'. Examples follow:
24c02, read/write, address 0x64:
# echo slave-24c02 0x1064 > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/i2c-1/new_device
24c512, read-only, address 0x42:
# echo slave-24c512ro 0x1042 > /sys/bus/i2c/devices/i2c-1/new_device
You can also preload data during boot if a device-property named
'firmware-name' contains a valid filename (DT or ACPI only).
As of 2015, Linux doesn't support poll on binary sysfs files, so there is no
notification when another master changed the content.
