Your symptoms match the bug that was fixed by:

bad3babace2ee4d ("mmc: fix CONFIG_MMC_UNSAFE_RESUME regression")

but this fix made it into 2.6.38, so if you're using 2.6.38 final then
you shouldn't be seeing this. Could you confirm that you have this

If so, could you try building a kernel with CONFIG_MMC_UNSAFE_RESUME=n
and see if you still have the same problem?
