I wonder what you ended up with? You are right, a single poll is not
enough. It only might be if one applies the new "single-master" binding
for a given bus. If that is not present, my best idea so far is to poll
SDA for the time defined in adapter->timeout and if it is all low, then
initiate a recovery.

All the best,
