When push comes to shove, it is pretty clear that this isn't
"non obvious to a practitioner in the field."  Just about
everyone realized tristating on chip was to be avoided and they
avoided it.  It's a patent.  But it's going to be pretty hard to
defend, once it gets into court.  Particularly so, because there
will be plenty of money available to break it, I suspect.
