The location of the connection is at “.../ports-foc/src/Lib/L4lx/”, like this:

static I2C::Connection *i2c() {
	static bool initialized = false;
	static I2C::Connection *i = 0;
	if (!initialized) {
		try {
			static I2C::Connection t;
			i = &t;
		} catch(...) {}
		initialized = true;
	return i;

The frequency of this error is not very high, sometimes several times a day, sometimes not once a week. 
So, it is difficult to determine which part of the code causes the error. Ourselves also don't know how to 
reproduce the error. Now, the error is mainly printed by I2C driver, also by some other drivers,such as 
Modem driver. The client is l4android.

When the error occurs, there is a phenomenon that the ID on server side is always "0x4", no matter what 
value of the label is.
