After the eMMC sleep command (CMD5) has been sent, the card start signals
busy on the DAT0 line, which can be monitored to understand when it's
allowed to proceed to power off the VCC regulator.

When MMC_CAP_WAIT_WHILE_BUSY isn't supported by the host the DAT0 line
isn't being monitored for busy completion, but instead we are waiting a
fixed period of time. The time corresponds to the sleep timeout that is
specified in the EXT_CSD register of the eMMC card. This is many cases
suboptimal, as the timeout corresponds to the worst case scenario.

To improve the situation add support for HW busy polling through the
->card_busy() host ops, when the host supports this.
