Correct. But on Spreadtrum platform there are some I2C slave devices
(like some sensors), they do not care the system suspend, and we can
not control them. So we can add this flag to make sure I2C driver can
be accessed safely no matter considering other slaves's dependency
like other drivers did (i2c-tegra.c, i2c-brcmstb.c and i2c-zx2967.c).
Thanks for your comments.
