i2c_transfer locks the bus [segment] for the entire time, so this
explanation on why the change is needed does not make sense.

Also, does it help if you mark the data message as I2C_M_NOSTART in case
of writes?

I also wonder if we should convert the driver to regmap, which should
help with handling the bank switch as well as figuring out if it can do
"gather write" or fall back to allocating an additional send buffer.
