I'm not sure "broken-hishspeed" property is relevant to only sdhci driver? otherwise on card side..?
Subject looks like only sdhci driver..And your RFC patch should be supported only SDHCI driver.
But your [patch 1/2] can cause the confusing in future..because there are just comment as "controller".

Then developer who refer to mmc.txt will add the property "broken-highspeed".
I'm not sure what is correct way..but to prevent mentioned only "sdhci" driver or supporting other controller.
