    As Namjae Jeon mentioned, how about this?
    I think only MMC_CAP2_PACKED_WR can be set for enabling the write packing easily.
    In my case, tested eMMC device is not optimized for packed read.
    So I couldn't confirm that this patch is effective in packed read.
    I think packed read as well as packed write of this patch conformed with the eMMC4.5 spec though.
    I wonder that your eMMC device has the good ability in both operations.
    It is difficult to decide the performance with excluding the device.
    Soon I will test it with the improved sample for packed read.

    Right! It is desirable and I hope that.
    Do you think this patch have the potential problem?
    As I also ask you, if you have tested and find something is incorrect, we can discuss that.
    It was submitted for that purpose.

    Basically, It has been tested with several I/O benchmark tool.
    Some misvalued I/O timing and wrong argument for packed command
    was used for triggering the error case.
