Subject: [PATCH 02/26] docs: i2c: summary: extend introduction

 - state the "official" name (I²C, not I2C, according to the spec) at
   the beginning but keep using the more practical I2C elsewhere
 - mention some known different names
 - add link to the specification document

 I2C and SMBus
 =============
 
-I2C (pronounce: I squared C) is a protocol developed by Philips. It is a
-slow two-wire protocol (variable speed, up to 400 kHz), with a high speed
-extension (3.4 MHz).  It provides an inexpensive bus for connecting many
-types of devices with infrequent or low bandwidth communications needs.
-I2C is widely used with embedded systems.  Some systems use variants that
-don't meet branding requirements, and so are not advertised as being I2C.

 SMBus (System Management Bus) is based on the I2C protocol, and is mostly
 a subset of I2C protocols and signaling.  Many I2C devices will work on an
