Subject: [PATCH 3/3] mmc: tegra: prevent ACMD23 on Tegra 3

It seems that SD3.0 advertisement needs to be set for higher eMMC
speed modes (namely DDR52) as well. The TRM states that the SD3.0
advertisement bit should be set for all controller instances, even
for those not supporting UHS-I mode...

When specifying vqmmc-supply as a fixed 1.8V regulator on a Tegra
SD/MMC instance which is connected to a eMMC device, the stack
enables SD3.0. However, enabling it has consequences: If SDHCI 3.0
support is advertised the stack enables Auto-CMD23. Unfortunately
Auto-CMD23 seems not to work well with Tegra 3 currently. It leads
to regular warnings:
  mmc2: Got command interrupt 0x00010000 even though no command operation was in progress.

It is not entirely clear why those errors happens. It seems that
a Linux 3.1 based downstream kernel which has Auto-CMD23 support
does not show those warnings.

Use quirk SDHCI_QUIRK2_ACMD23_BROKEN to prevent Auto-CMD23 being
used for now. With this the eMMC works stable on high-speed mode
while still announcing SD3.0.

This allows to use mmc-ddr-1_8v to enables DDR52 mode. In DDR52
mode read speed improves from about 42MiB/s to 72MiB/s on an
Apalis T30.
