I'm now thinking that it will be not very worthwhile to spend time on
trying to understand why runtime PM isn't working as expected here. It
will be better to simply remove runtime PM from the I2C driver because
it is used only for clock-gating/pinmuxing and it is a very light
operation in comparison to I2C transfer performance. Thus it should be
better to avoid the runtime PM overhead by enabling/disabling the I2C
clocks before/after the transfer, I think that's what driver did before
the runtime PM addition.

Thierry / Jon / Mikko, any objections?
