Actually, for the MXT224E on which I've been testing, the CHG line
goes high after reading the first byte of the T5 message (in other
words, the first byte of the first message, no matter how many
messages T44 reports).

Expect an updated version of this patchset soon.

Thanks for all of your reviews!
