In my case it happens in the touchscreen driver during of the
touchscreen's interrupt handling (in a threaded IRQ handler) + CPU is
under load and there is other interrupts activity. So what happens here
is that the TS driver issues one I2C transfer, which fails with
(apparently bogus) timeout (because DMA descriptor is completed and
removed from the pending list, but tasklet not executed yet), and then
TS immediately issues another I2C transfer that re-uses the
yet-incompleted descriptor. That's my understanding.
