[PATCH] mmc: host: sdhci: Fix console flooding when there is no proper card detection

From: maxin.john
Date: Thu Apr 25 2013 - 04:19:14 EST

From: "Maxin B. John" <maxin.john@xxxxxxxx>

With 3.9.0-rc8 kernel in p2020rdb powerpc target, the console gets
flooded with this message without any SD-Cards present:
"mmc0: Timeout waiting for hardware interrupt"

Since the driver doesn't implement proper card detection, it assumes that
card is always present. This quick-n-dirty patch removes this console

In an ideal world, the driver should have "cd-gpio" support.
