Lightbulb Could not set I2C Bus Busy bit to zero

I am using the i2c to communicate with my device. There is no error as such but a lot of warning messages "I2C adapter i2c-0: Could not set I2C Bus Busy bit to zero." coming from the i2c driver. Is there a way to get ride of these warnings?
My linux kernel version is 2.6.28.

if you try to set the bit to zero
it will just set the bit back to one on the next clock tick

in linux-2.6.26/drivers/i2c/busses/mxc_i2c.c there is a function mxc_i2c_stop() that prints the above warning when 16 retries fail. I trying to figure out a way to get rid of this warning if possible and save some clock cycles.
