Whoops! Hadn't actually tested it on hardware after making that change 
(it used to be SMBHSTSTAT = 0x5, just like vt8235). Thanks for catching

It works without those? Interesting. I'll try it in a few minutes, see 
if it works here.

dump_spd_data() works for you immediately after enabling the smbus??? 
Very odd, I've been having the worst problem with the smbus not being 
quite ready yet, so it dumps 0s instead of valid data for the first 22 
reads. Perhaps that's related to the above?
