Spurious interupt happens in both modes.

Abort only happens in polled mode, becase polling executes the irq handler
before the stop condition interrupt fires. In that case rk3x_i2c_irq will
execute rk3x_i2c_handle_stop, which will terminate the transfer, becasuse
it's executed without STOP completion interrupt flag being set.

In interrupt mode, the interrupt handler alwyas executes after the stop
condition, so the spurious START interrupt is ignored in this case.

kind regards,
