Hi David,

Would you please comment on this?

>>> Why did you drop this check? It has nothing with w1-gpio driver
>> This check prevents master from implementing "set_pullup"  provided it does support only "write_bit" method.
>> The comment above states that
>>>   w1_io.c would need to support calling set_pullup before - * the last write_bit operation of a w1_write_8 which it currently - * doesn't.

>>>                          if (i == 7)
>>>                                  w1_pre_write(dev);
>>>                          w1_touch_bit(dev, (byte >> i) & 0x1);
>>>                  }
>> It seems like w1_write_8() calls w1_pre_write(), which in turn calls set_pullup() just before the last write_bit().
