How to configure I2C speed

Hi all,
my I2C kernel module is working fine - but terrible slow. So I guess it is running on low (10kbit/s) or standard speed (100kBit/s).
The device I'm using is a DS2482 and it is capable of "fast mode" with 400kBit/s.

How to switch the speed to fast mode? probably it have something to do with loading the kernel module "modprobe i2c_dev"...

And of course, at the end I would like to know at which speed the bus master is currently talking to the device. Is there a way to show the current speed?

anybody have and idea???

Meanwhile I looked with the scope to the I2C_CLK pin and saw 100kHz. So still the question is open how to configure the kernel module to run at 400kHz???
(I'm using a Freescale i.MX25 processor)



kernel module, performance, speed
