OK, just as a suggestion how about an optional suffix on all the I2C
iprobe.2 -- discover valid I2C interfaces on controller #2.
imw.0 (or just imw) -- memory write to address on controller #0 (or the
only controller in most cases).
Seems like it wouldn't break anything to specify the controller this
