yes, it is the nub + touch peripheral bus.

That is something I have never seen.

Ok, will try.

Basically this brings me to an idea: are the i2c pull-up resistors not
properly enabled? Or some pull-downs enabled in parallel to hardware
pull-ups (I have not looked into the schematics)?

Yes, that is likely the same symptom.

But for me the original 3.2 kernel works fine (well, I don't have the same
user-space then so I can't test apt-get).

What I plan to test next is to install some very old known to be good kernel,
(e.g. 4.14.0 or similar) and try to trigger the xudf issue.
