m68k/mcf5206elite/i2c/i2c.c: questionable volatile use-case

contains this code:

static rtems_status_code
i2c_transfer_wait_poll(i2c_bus_number bus, i2c_message *msg, int nmsg)

volatile bool poll_done_flag;
rtems_status_code sc;
poll_done_flag = false;
sc = i2c_transfer(bus, nmsg, msg, i2c_transfer_poll_done_func,



I.e. it passes the address of a local "volatile" variable down to other functions.

IMO, this code abuses volatile and is likely broken.

I am inclined to think, a "static bool poll_done_flags" (either global or inside
of i2c_transfer_wait_poll()) should be used instead.
