Of course, it can. If the driver has a slave registered wait and
listens and if the subsystem needs to use the controller as master, the
driver changes the state of the controller to master, sends and reads
data from the bus and after this change the state of the controller to
slave. In cdns_i2c_master_xfer is done all the magic.
