    The eMMC i.e. drivers/mmc/host/msm_sdcc.c should preferably
    not be converted, instead switch the platforms over to using
    drivers/mmc/host/mmci.c which is already very well enabled for
    DMA engine.

    Augment it with Qualcomm silicon differences as needed, I do
    not think they will be major.
