More info:

Chapter 5 "I2C Bus Interface" of MSP34x0D datasheet describes conditions
when SCL is held low to allow time for internal processing.

In I2C revisions prior to 2.6.4, i2c-algo-bit did not check SCL low when
sending " Repeating Start ". This bus condition is used when master
writes to client to select register, and then gets the content.
Call to msp3400c_read() does just that.

Patch only replaces setscl(adap,1) with sclhi(adap) in
drivers/i2c/i2c-algo-bit.c, i2c_repstart(), line 147.
