Maybe a better approach would be to leave the workqueue unfreezable,
and keep cancel_delayed_work_sync() in mmc_suspend_host(). It would
then be necessary to add a test to verify, if there is a card attached,
that the card is indeed suspended. After all, it's possible that the
cancel_delayed_work_sync() ended up waiting for a job already running
on the workqueue to register a new card! (The same would be true even
with flush_scheduled_work.)

Also, as a bit of defensive programming, it might be a good idea to add
a "suspended" flag to the mmc_host structure. If mmc_rescan() sees
that the flag is set then it should return immediately. This would
protect against host drivers that aren't careful to disable detect
IRQs before calling mmc_suspend_host().
