+\begin{frame}{I2C functionality}
+  \begin{itemize}
+  \item Not all I2C controllers support all functionalities.
+  \item The I2C controller drivers therefore tell the I2C core which
+    functionalities they support.
+  \item An I2C device driver must check that the functionalities they
+    need are provided by the I2C controller in use on the system.
+  \item The \code{i2c_check_functionality()} function allows to make
+    such a check.
+  \item Examples of functionalities: \code{I2C_FUNC_I2C} to be able to
+    use the raw I2C functions, \code{I2C_FUNC_SMBUS_BYTE_DATA} to be
+    able to use SMBus commands to write a command and read/write one
+    byte of data.
+  \item See \code{include/uapi/linux/i2c.h} for the full list of
+    existing functionalities.
+  \end{itemize}
+  \begin{itemize}
+  \item \url{http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I2C}, general presentation
+    of the I2C protocol
+  \item \code{Documentation/i2c/}, details about the Linux support for I2C
+    \begin{itemize}
+    \item \code{writing-clients}, how to write I2C device drivers
+    \item \code{instantiating-devices}, how to instantiate devices
+    \item \code{smbus-protocol}, details on the SMBus functions
+    \item \code{functionality}, how the functionality mechanism works
+    \item and many more documentation files
