vx6852 support (driver) in Linux Operating System

As we can see in the text configuration file /etc/camd/vx6852-load-firmware ,
vx6852 use I2C protocol.
At http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I%C2%B2C#Operating_system_support,
the wiki page said : "In Linux, I²C is handled with a device driver for the specific device, and another for the I²C (or SMBus) adapter to which it's connected. Several hundred such drivers are part of current releases."
