Try to detect 1-register-only devices, which are designed to be
accessed with SMBus receive byte and SMBus send byte transactions
(i.e. short reads and short writes) and treat SMBus read byte as a
real write followed by a read. The device detection routines would
write random values to the chip with possibly very nasty results for
the hardware. So when we detect such a chip, we skip all probing for
this address.
