I think this is too verbose and should be a debugging only patch not
really suited for upstream. But if you like it this way, then keep
the verbosity. However, dev_err is too strong, this really needs to be
dev_dbg. Timeouts can happen on an I2C bus, think about an EEPROM in a
long erase cycle while you want to read it. Perfectly normal.

Needs to stay dev_dbg as well.
