This patch causes a boot stall when booting witherspoon-bmc with
qemu v3.0, and all i2c device probes fail with error -110 (timeout).
Bisect log is attached for reference.

With the same kernel configuration (aspeed_g5_defconfig),
ast2500-evb and romulus-bmc are still able to boot.
palmetto-bmc with aspeed_g4_defconfig also appears to work.

Is this a problem with qemu ? Should I drop the qemu test
for witherspoon-bmc starting with the next kernel release ?

Thanks,
Guenter
