SubjectRe: [PATCH] ARM i.MX: Fix a kernel panic in i2c_imx_clk_notifier_call().
Hi Fabio,

Well, I hope Lucas could add something here. I am uncertain how it was
supposed to work, the ndata->clk (the pointer, not the clk pointed by
it) can't be at the same time a member of imx_i2c_struct, and I believe
the macro only does simple arithmetics to get to the outer struct.

Probably (it went in between 4.16 and 4.17, commit id is
90ad2cbe88c22d0215225ab9594eeead0eb24fde). However this part may be
unused on many boards (apparently it only fires up if the "IPG" clock
rate changes), so it may not manifest itself. I only hit it when I added
a custom driver (using/requesting a special clock derived from IPG).
