>>>>>> Are you sure you are not having runtime PM enabled. That could be your problem as the host controller code disables sdio irqs. Please see this thread [1]. For our device runtime pm should not be enabled, but I am not sure if that is taken into account in mmc_attach_sdio() (see code below).

Thanks, Zhonghui

Given that the patches Russell made were covering sdhci (as far as I 
recall) your issue may be specific to the sdhci-acpi driver. In 
sdhci_acpi_probe() it is enabled by use_runtime_pm field in private data:

c->use_runtime_pm = sdhci_acpi_flag(c, SDHCI_ACPI_RUNTIME_PM);

Arend
