Ok, maybe naming of the variable is a bit harsh. Currently I don't know any
other hardware with the same issue. While I don't know CEC protocol or DW HDMI
CEC controller very well, I think it would be difficult to implement change of
direction during ACK transmission. At that time, packet is not fully received
or transmitted, so I doubt we could use any interrupt for that. In any case, I
don't think it's worth the hassle and we should just use proven software
implementation.

Early attempt on fixing this on kernel provided by Allwinner resulted in very
ugly code and I'm not sure it works 100% (driver based on i.MX6 one):
