Just added it along with a HowTo Wiki page with a couple of links.

Also added a link to the File_Systems page

That says a lot about how far the Wiki has come.  But it also shows
that information categoriization and management is every bit as
important as information creation. :-D

Can you please take Sebastian's information along with whatever
you can put together as you go into the beginnings of a chapter in
the BSP Guide on i2c, spi and serial buses?  Even if you just keep
raw text with the information and get me to format it when you
are done, it would be a big leg up.  It is a hole in that manual
that needs to be addressed.

To everyone, the BSP and Driver Manual is always going to be
a work in process.  Please submit changes, improvements, new
chapters on different device drivers.  It is a very difficult manual
to make sure it covers everything and as things change, it is the
hardest to keep up to date and cover new topics.
