Sorry for the long-delayed feedback: It turned out that the reason I was
getting timeouts and looking into i2c in the first place was that the
firmware was driving that controller behind my back, so I couldn't do
useful testing anyway.
I put together a patch
but I'm a bit concerned by it: I don't see a way to get the controller
back to its idle state without continuing through the I2C state machine,
and if the clock is still being stretched it doesn't continue unless CLK
What is supposed to happen when adap->timeout times out while the clock
is being stretched? Should we be able to try starting a fresh new I2C
