>> Are you sure you are not having runtime PM enabled. That could be your problem as the host controller code disables sdio irqs. Please see this thread [1]. For our device runtime pm should not be enabled, but I am not sure if that is taken into account in mmc_attach_sdio() (see code below).

Depends which kernel you are using. In 3.16-rc1 the sdio interrupt issue 
has been fixed so you should be fine to use CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME. Here is 
the commit

     mmc: sdhci: allow sdio interrupts while sdhci runtime suspended
