Yes, I understood that.

Either you didn't understand what I meant, or I don't understand why you
consider your patch right anyhow. So I try to explain in other and more

IMHO the intention here (and also what happens on i.MX) is that exactly
the AL interrupt pending bit should be cleared and the IF irq is
supposed to be untouched.

Given there are only two irq flags in the I2SR register (which is called
IBSR on Vybrid) the status quo (i.e. without your patch) is:

On i.MX IAL is cleared
On Vybrid IIF (which is called IBIF there) is cleared.

With your patch we get:

On i.MX IAL is cleared
On Vybrid both IIF (aka IBIF) and IAL (aka IBAL) are cleared.

To get it right for both SoC types you have to do (e.g.):

temp = ~i2c_imx->hwdata->i2sr_clr_opcode ^ I2SR_IAL;

(and in i2c_imx_isr() the same using I2SR_IIF instead of I2SR_IAL
because there currently IAL might be cleared by mistake on Vybrid).

I considered creating a patch, but as I don't have a Vybrid on my desk
and on i.MX there is no change, I let you do this.
