 From memory:

I2C access from user space is no problem using the generic I2C driver.
I had I2C access from kernel space working in a personal branch but 
unfortunately my way of doing this was very messy.
I therefore never dared submit my version.

I also had power-off working but, to be persistent across a power 
outage, the edmini_v2 driver needs to modify a flag in the I2C EEPROM.
In fact the LaCie EDmini V2 never really powers-off, it starts a reboot 
then loops in U-Boot.
If this flag indicates a power-off state, U-Boot waits for the power-on 
button to be pressed before booting Linux.
This was actually the main reason for needing I2C access from kernel space.

If anyone can show me how to cleanly access the generic I2C driver from 
the edmini_v2 driver, I could try again.
