That I got, somewhere in trying to build a working kernel without the
config_broken, i2c-isa got lost. Restored that and all is well in
that dept.

I've got 3 patches that remove the '&& EXPERIMENTAL' from the Kconfigs
for the nforce2 stuffs, and even posted one here, but got .000zip
response, so I don't know if they are welcome or not...
