Nothing landed that I'm aware of. Are you on SDIO, SD or eMMC?
Trying to do UHS?

I know that this patch mattered for me for UHS:

7c5209c315ea mmc: core: Increase delay for voltage to stabilize from
3.3V to 1.8V

Also important for UHS (for at least some folks) were patches like:

9c85f37a2984 mmc: core: Add mmc_regulator_set_vqmmc()

...that attempted to get voltages more proper...

In the ChromeOS tree we did just land treating HLE errors as data and
cmd errors <>. It's not
wonderful but it's better than letting an interrupt go off forever...
