I think we probably want to keep it enabled yes. Another reason is that
SMBus notifications are in effect a type of multi-master (well slave
really), and we should really add support for them even when the slave
is not enabled.

We are hitting some PMbus devices that apparently can't be prevented
from sending those and that's causing issues.
