@benpicco I'm not sure if this is a bug. The I2C spec doesn't talk about register addresses, as far as I can see, only about device addresses (7 or 10 bit). The spec also doesn't talk about endianness, at all.

Now, there aren't many uses of 16 bit register addresses. So that could be an explanation why nobody bothered. I happen to know of one in the SHT2x driver where the identifier is read from a 16 bit register address. The SHT2x documentation isn't very clear about the actual address. It just gives an example of the bytes to transfer and I have adapted the register address to make it work with the I2C driver.

Could it perhaps be that endianness interpretation is a device issue?
