First of all, thanks for posting this - and my apologies for not
having the bandwidth to review the earlier versions.

The above points to some specifications, which is good, but what I
really need to be able to do a proper review -  is an explanation of
*what*, *why* and *how* the series implements the UHS-II support.

To be clear, I don't need in-depth details, as that should be
described in each patch's commit message, but I would appreciate an
overall description of the approach you have taken to implement this.

The reason I need this is because UHS-II is a completely new
interface/protocol. If it wasn't because that a UHS-II card is also
required to be backwards compatible with the legacy SD interface, one
could even consider introducing an entirely new subsystem. Not saying
that we should, but just pointing out that the series is not trivial
to review.

That said, I am going to give it a real try to do the review. I will
try to focus on the overall approach, rather than on the details, at
least to start with.

I like these comparisons, thanks for sharing!

What UHS-II interface mode does you HW support? FD156, HD312, FD312 FD624?

Nitpick:

I would prefer to prefix any new needed file with sd_*. In this case,
sd_uhs2.c|h.
