Subject: [PATCH] mmc: sdhci-xenon: fix 1.8v regulator stabilization

From: Alex Leibovich <>

Automatic Clock Gating is a feature used for the power
consumption optimisation. It turned out that
during early init phase it may prevent the stable voltage
switch to 1.8V - due to that on some platfroms an endless
printout in dmesg can be observed:
"mmc1: 1.8V regulator output did not became stable"
Fix the problem by disabling the ACG at very beginning
of the sdhci_init and let that be enabled later.
