Other fields are unused, the max segment size is supposed to be
calculated "given" the address width and burst size. Since these
can't be provided to get_caps, I have left it out for now.
See: https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/3/6/464

Even if it did, the "segment size" itself is unused in the MMC driver
that this is supposed to fix, unlike the "number of segments" which I'm
populating above.

If you know of a better way to populate max segment size, let me know.

Thanks,

-Joel
