sorry, I can't follow your intention here. Shouldn't it be something
like "assert mmc -> may need delay -> deassert mmc". As your current
code, nothing happend right?
Should be abstracted in reset driver.

The chip exits from bootloader with this bit asserted. And when entering
kernel, we only need to deassert.

In my current code, the driver deassert mmc in _probe(), and assert mmc
in _remove().

I catch your point. From the previous discussion, we add it to make sure
dw_mmc in good state after leaving bootloader to kernel. But My real
question is that you can assert it in bootloader, so you can also
dessert it in bootloaer to make sure dw_mmc work fine when probing
in kernel. In that way, we don't need this patch?

uefi does not have exit point, and kernel may not assume mmc controller state is always correct when boot.
If Uefi need copy Image from mmc, mmc controller is in working state.
When jump to kernel, uefi mmc driver can not recover itself.
If kernel assume mmc controller state is clean, mmc will be in abnormal state.
Some controller will clear itself when set clock, however, hip660 does not, it need special register to access.

More to think, Is it ok to match the behaviour of bootloader stage?
My bootloader doesn't assert the reset pin of dw_mmc, so it seams if
I want to fix you issue on kernel stage, I need a new round of

The process like delay (if required) should be abstracted in reset driver.
reset framework just export reset_control_assert/reset_control_deassert API.
Unfortunately not find clear description in Documentation/.
Suppose deassert is like start, while assert is like stop.

reset_control_deassert - deasserts the reset line
reset_control_assert - asserts the reset line
