can you describe the issue you're trying to fix a bit more please?

I.e. I'd think the i2c-core does suspend i2c-client devices first, so that
these should be able to finish up their ongoing transfers and not start any
new ones instead?

Your irq can still happen slightly after the system started going to actually
sleep, so to me it looks like you just widened the window where irqs can be
handled. Especially as your irq could also just simply stem from the start
state, so you cannot even be sure if your transaction actually is finished.

So to me it looks like the i2c-connected device driver should be fixed instead?

In the past I solved this for example in the zforce_ts driver [0] to
prevent i2c transfers from happening during suspend.
