    Subject[049/123] tmio_mmc: dont clear unhandled pending interrupts
    From: Yusuke Goda <>

    commit b78d6c5f51935ba89df8db33a57bacb547aa7325 upstream.

    Previously, it was possible for ack_mmc_irqs() to clear pending interrupt
    bits in the CTL_STATUS register, even though the interrupt handler had not
    been called. This was because of a race that existed when doing a
    read-modify-write sequence on CTL_STATUS. After the read step in this
    sequence, if an interrupt occurred (causing one of the bits in CTL_STATUS
    to be set) the write step would inadvertently clear it.

    Observed with the TMIO_STAT_RXRDY bit together with CMD53 on AR6002 and
    BCM4318 SDIO cards in polled mode.

    This patch eliminates this race by only writing to CTL_STATUS and clearing
    the interrupts that were passed as an argument to ack_mmc_irqs()."
