SubjectRe: [RFC][MMC] Buggy cards need to leave programming state

This is interesting. In the specs I have, they indicate that the
correct behaviour of a MMC card for CMD24 (write block) is that
when its write buffer is full, it will hold the DAT signal low to
indicate "busy" to the host controller.

Now, the ARM MMCI holds the data path in the "BUSY" state while
the MMC card asserts this indication, so we don't complete the
data transfer until the card says it's not busy.

For PXAMCI, it looks like we aren't waiting for the indication
from the host which tells us that the "BUSY" has cleared.

Does wbsd wait for the DAT busy signal to de-assert?

However, I do note that from the October dump, the card is
reporting that it is ready for more data (bit 8):

MMC: req done (0d): 0: 00000f00 4b000000 00000000 00000000

whereas it's impossible to tell with the November dump because
the useful information has been edited out. Hence the November
dump is rather useless.
