Wolfram could you please try the patch with your environment?

No change, sadly. I don't get slave interrupts.

Slave ISR is called only if slave device is registered on a bus. Do you get master interrupts ?

Init function is called multuple times. If I2C controller works
in slave mode, then driver must keep slave registers otherwise
slave configuration will be reseted.

This patch does not tackle the main issue, though. There should not be a
"slave mode" for the controller.

Looks like my commit message is not clear enough :(

I mean something like this:
"If slave functionality is enabled, then ..."

It can be a master and slave
simultaneously and should do the right thing depending on what's
happening on the bus. The Tegra2 manual I have says "The Master can
address the internal slave (for basic testing) or an external 7-bit or
10-bit addressed Slave device." So even a loopback should be possible
(if we trust the manual ;)).

Slave logic is not enabled by default (we don't set up proper configuration and slave address). We can enable it by default but it is useless without driver that will handle requests.

We used i2cdetect on the I2C bus where master NVEC controller is connected. i2cdetect found devices on the bus. Also keyboard and mouse was running fine after that (slave logic was not disabled).
