This commit message seems a bit overstating the change or I am missing 
what you mean by incorrect execution here. These functions are pretty 
low-level and failures are likely SDIO bus errors that are likely 
persistent. For that reason not every individual call is checked for 
errors as net result is that device will become inoperable.

Arend
