OK. I will add the check for TPGS. I will send the patches tomorrow.
For sending the VPD pages(0xC2, 0xC4 and 0xC8), I think we need be little careful here.
This includes sending these commands to every possible device in the system. That is what we want to avoid.
I will investigate more on that. That will be my next set of patches independent of this.
