Hi,

No, after the NACK, no more commands are being processed,
including a repeated start. omap_i2c_xfer() returns -EREMOTEIO
without ever freeing the bus.

The bus is left in an impossible state with SCL constantly low
and all next commands (to different chips) will therefore get
a -ETIMEDOUT

With this patch, the bus will become idle again and new commands
can be processed normally

Hein
