I have an existing application that uses both I2C buses on a model B. Since the B+ has redefined the other I2C bus, this is an issue. I understand the whole HAT idea, but this hardware application could not possibly be a HAT.
Since my application has no provision for an EEPROM nor would it benefit from it, is there some way that I can reconfigure the firmare/kernel so that the ID_EEPROM I2C bus is converted to a general purpose I2C bus?
If I have to, I am willing to rebuild the Linux kernel/firmware so that I regain the use of the 2nd I2C bus. I just need some help or guidance in this regard.
