Please check i2c_dw_isr() and tell me in which code path interrupts are not
getting masked. Or am I missing something fundamental here?

In case of abort, we mask interrupts. Also whenever the transaction
completes we mask interrupts (in i2c_dw_xfer_msg()).

Only place where we didn't do that, as far as I can tell, is right after
reset because of the HW default value that unmasks most of them.
