Also as I understand it, this bus is a mandatory part of the standard,
so any CPU card must contain an I2C bus and therefore will be able to
talk to the battery controller (if that is indeed where the battery
controller lives).

I guess I should stop speculating, but this seems like a reasonable
way to control the battery in an EOMA68 world.
