Hi Federico

I did some timing tests for this. On my box, we request a udelay of
80uS. The kernel actually delays for about 79uS. We then spin in
ocores_wait() for an additional 10-11uS, which is 3 to 4 iterations.

There are actually 9 bits on the wire, not 8, since there is an
ACK/NACK bit after the actual data transfer. So i changed the delay to
(9 * 1000) / i2c->bus_clock_khz. That resulted in ocores_wait() mostly
not looping at all. But for reading an 4K AT24 EEPROM, it increased
the read time by 10ms, from 424ms to 434ms. So we should probably keep
with 8.
