Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] mmc: sdhci: add quirk for broken write protect detection

Hello Michal.

The Zybo board doesn't have any WP pin connected to the MicroSD card. 
There is no physical possibility for the processor to know whether the 
card is write-protected or not.

As I mentioned earlier, the practical problem can be worked around by 
inverting the polarity of the WP bit, using wp-inverted. Practically 
speaking, there's no need for this patch.

I insisted on this patch, because I think that the device tree should 
reflect the hardware as it is, and not contain tricks for fooling the 
driver into doing what we want. But I guess this wasn't a reason good 
enough for adding yet another quirk (to the existing 38 or so).
