I think I have an easy way to see if a kernel is good or bad, by 
printing stack_not_used(current) in the first call to 
omap_i2c_xfer_irq(). There's a huge drop between v5.12 and v5.13-rc1.

And interestingly, sometimes a simple printk seems to use hundreds of 
bytes of stack (i.e. compare stack usage before and after the print). 
But not always. So maybe the issue is somehow related to printk.

I'm bisecting.
