The new mode is there for all MMC controllers. The other two MMC
controllers even have the old/new timing mode switch. In case you
forgot we have ".need_new_timings" set for the A64 compatible.

But to eliminate any doubts or concerns, I've rerun tests for the
micro SD card, instead of the eMMC. And yes the results are the same,
2x improvement (12 MB/s vs 23.7 MB/s).
