    BMI270: I2C reads while in fatal error

    BMI270: I2C reads while in fatal error

    I noticed that there is a possibility for a "Fatal Error" on the BMI270.

    1.) What is the state of the device when a fatal error is triggered, specifically is it possible to still read the chip ID over I2C while it is in this state?

    2.) Under what conditions is a fatal error triggered? Is it only during the intialization process?

    For context I am trying to track down an issue that occurred in the field where I2C transfers started failing with the BMI270 some time after initialization. I have been unable to reproduce the issue but I know that it was resolved by a power cycle of the BMI270. I'm trying to determine if it is a viable explanation that the device got into the fatal error state and that is why the I2C transfers were failing.
