thank you very much for testing on Vybrid.

The IAL errors happen due to noise on our I2C bus. We have our power supply
connected via I2C. The hardware designers wanted to make sure that no
high currents flow through the ground pins of the I2C interface. So they added
a series resistor (30 Ohm) in the GND line between the power supply and the
i.MX board.

If you have an I2C device on an external PCB, adding some small series
resistance in the GND line may cause IAL errors. On the other hand, if
everything else works fine, also handling if IAL should work on Vybrid.
