[PATCH] mvsdio: fix config failure with some high speed SDHC cards

From: Nicolas Pitre
Date: Tue May 26 2009 - 22:35:53 EST

Especially with Sandisk SDHC cards, the second SWITCH command was failing
with a timeout and the card was not recognized at all. However if the
system was busy, or debugging was enabled, or a udelay(100) was inserted
before the second SWITCH command in the core code, then the timing was
so that the card started to work.

This appears to be a problem with the host hardware. With some unusual
block sizes, the data FIFO status doesn't indicate a "empty" state right
away when the data transfer is done. Queuing another data transfer in
that condition results in a transfer timeout.

The empty FIFO bit eventually get set by itself in less than 50 usecs
when it is not set right away. So let's just poll for that bit before
configuring the controller with a new data transfer.
