Subject: [PATCH] mmc: meson-mx-sdio: trigger a soft reset after a timeout or CRC error

The vendor driver (from the 3.10 kernel) triggers a soft reset every
time before starting a new command. While this fixes a problem where
SDIO cards are not detected at all (because all commands simply
timed out) this hurts SD card read performance a bit (in my tests
between 10% to 20%).

Trigger a soft reset after we got a CRC error or if the previous command
timed out (just like the vendor driver from the same 3.10 kernel for the
newer SDHC controller IP does). This fixes detection of SDIO cards and
doesn't hurt SD card read performance at the same time.

With this patch the initialization of an RTL8723BS SDIO card looks like
this:

Ulf, I consider this non-critical because as long as the meson-mx-sdhc
driver is not merged we only have one MMC driver for these platforms.
I don't know anybody to prefer SDIO wifi over SD card access, so this
can go into -next (in my option at least).
