This is why I was pushing so hard to get the patches that split the
files in. Takashi is going to change the base mpc5200_i2c file and I
am going to have to manually fix up up my 14 patches layered on top.
Git handles file renames fine, but it doesn't handle the case of
splitting a file very well. Once the patches that split the file are
in the tree Git handles things ok.
