One of the sama5d2 based board I worked on, was having trouble complete its boot
because of a faulty i2c device, which was randomly holding down the SDA line
on i2c write operation, not allowing the controller to complete its transmission,
causing a massive TXRDY interrupt spam, ultimately hanging the processor.

Another strange observation was that SVREAD was being set in the status register
along with TXRDY, every time I reproduced the issue.
You can reproduce it by simply grounding the SDA line and performing i2c write
on the bus.

Note that NACK, LOCK or TXCOMP are never set as the transmission never completes.
I'm not sure why slave bits are being set in master mode,
but it's been working reliably for me.

This patch doesn't recover the SDA line. It just prevents the processor from
getting hanged in case of i2c bus lockup.

Cheers,
