Well, from a device perspective, it is probably better to be safe than
sorry and fall back to a single byte read. That means, however, that we
need READ_WORD_DATA and READ_BYTE_DATA to be supported by the adapter.
Should be OK, I don't think there are adapters which can only read words.

I am not very strict with the 80 char limit. I'd think the code is more
readable if the two statements above would be oneliners. And for some
other lines later as well.

No need for else since we return in the above if anyhow.

I don't think the %d printouts are useful. Just say that the adapter
lacks support for needed transactions. And I think the device which
reports the error should be the client device, no?

Thanks,
