I don't think I've seen that patch. And now we have the work by Philip and
myself which adds support for both MMC 4.0 and 4.2. The only missing piece is
8-bit data and I'm not that interested in adding it until we have a driver that
can use it.

Kindof. The controller drivers should indeed just handle the controller and
leave the protocol stuff to the mmc core. The problem is that this bus testing
stuff breaks the previous standards. Sending invalid CRC was not previously a
supported operation, so many controllers just toss the data when that happens.
And since the bus testing is specified as a test, not a required part of the
wide bus song and dance, we've decided to leave it out.
