$ git ls-files | grep eprom | wc -l
[jimc at frodo linux.git]$ git ls-files | grep eprom\.h | wc -l
[jimc at frodo linux.git]$ git ls-files | grep eprom  | grep include

Id look at those headers for similarity,
then the 2 c files in misc for similarity.

also the files under devicetree - thats ALL interface defn

you didnt say if those parts are I2C or SPI or what.

do you have the hardware ?
