That really sounds like a common i2c miss-understanding.
Linux kernel i2c functions use only the 7bit address part of the i2c address.
So it sounds like your device has address 0x56 for writing and 0x57 for 
reading. (is this correct?)
Now you give i2c_master_send or i2c_transfer the 7bit part, 0x56 >> 1, and 
that is 0x2B.
