Using µs (microseconds) would be OK? I'm not sure yet about the exact
timeout desired but a one millisecond granularity might not be enough
for the Mobileye usecase.

Expect incoming patches to use the I2C controller in Fast Mode Plus
(1Mbps) and High Speed Mode (3.4Mbps). Gotta go fast!

Indeed. The other question if we do microseconds is the
suffix: -us, -usecs, -microseconds, etc? I picked -usecs for my v1, but
a grep tells me I am the only user of this suffix. -us is much more

BTW i2c-controller.yaml already has a µs timeout:
