In multi-master environment, this driver's master cannot know
exactly when peer master sends data to this driver's slave so a
case can be happened that this master tries to send data through
the master_xfer function but slave data from peer master is still
being processed by this driver.
To prevent state corruption in the case, this patch adds checking
code if any slave operation is ongoing and it waits up to the
timeout duration before starting a master_xfer operation.
Please review this patch set.
Changes since v3:
- Changed the property name to 'timeout' and made it use the
default setting in i2c-core when not specified.
Changes since v2:
- Changed the property name to 'aspeed,timeout' and made it to
update the adapter's timeout configuration.
Changes since v1:
- Changed define names of timeout related.
