i2c: designware: must wait for enable

One I2C bus on my Atom E3845 board has been broken since 4.9.
It has two devices, both declared by ACPI and with built-in drivers.

There are two back-to-back transactions originating from the kernel, one
targeting each device. The first transaction works, the second one locks
up the I2C controller. The controller never recovers.

These kernel logs show up whenever an I2C transaction is attempted after
this failure.
i2c-designware-pci 0000:00:18.3: timeout in disabling adapter
i2c-designware-pci 0000:00:18.3: timeout waiting for bus ready

Waiting for the I2C controller status to indicate that it is enabled
before programming it fixes the issue.

I have tested this patch on 4.14 and 4.15.

Fixes: commit 2702ea7d
