[PATCH 2/2] i2c: designware: make i2c xfers non-interruptible

From: Christian Ruppert
Date: Thu Jun 06 2013 - 09:44:24 EST

When the process at the source of an i2c transfer is killed in the
middle of the transfer, the transfer is interrupted. Interrupted
transfers might cause buggy slaves on the bus (or higher level drivers)
to go haywire.
This patch forces ongoing i2c transfers to finish properly, even if the
initiating process is killed.
