Tested (not extensively) on Vybrid VF500 (Toradex VF50):
Tested-by: Krzysztof Kozlowski <>

The I2C on Vybrid VF500 still works fine (also bigger transfers). I did
not test this actual condition (arbitration) but only a regular I2C
driver (BQ27xxx fuel gauge). Obviously this only proves that regular
operation is not broken...

Best regards,
