Subject[patch 4/5] s3cmci: fix continual accesses to host->pio_ptr
The s3cmci driver uses the host->pio_ptr field to
point to the current position into the buffer for data
transfer. During the transfers it does the following:

while (fifo_words--)
*(host->pio_ptr++) = readl(from_ptr);
This is inefficent, as host->pio_ptr is not used in any
other part of the transfer but the compiler emits code
which does the following:

while (fifo_words--) {
u32 *ptr = host->pio_ptr;
*ptr = readl(from_ptr);
ptr++;
host->pio_ptr = ptr;
}
This is obviously a waste of a load and store each time
around the loop, which could be up to 16 times depending
on how much needs to be transfered.

Move the ptr accesses to outside the while loop so that
we do not end up reloading/re-writing the pointer.

Note, this seems to make the code 16 bytes larger.
