Right, the key point i2c-pxa does is that on prepare:
- read the current state of the SCL and SDA lines and set the GPIO to
  reflect those values.
- then switch the pinmux state.

That must be preserved, otherwise if SCL is being held low by the I2C
master, and we switch to GPIO mode, SCL will be released.  So the
driver needs to be involved before the pinmux state is changed.
