This is exactly why I've been saying that we need to get away from the
POWER_UP vs POWER_ON stuff. We instead need a _single_ call into
drivers to tell them to apply power and bring the card to a state
where it can be talked to.
That includes waiting for the power to stabilise, and sending the
initial clocks to allow the card to initialise.
In the case of extra GPIOs, host drivers will need to call back into
the MMC core at the point where they have stabilised the power.
The current situation where we split the power-up/power-on sequence
between the host drivers and the core is really a hinderance to getting
a working implementation - it's additional complexity where none is
FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: currently at 10.5Mbps down 400kbps up
according to speedtest.net.
