Argh, DALGN shouldn't be defined in pxa-regs.h. We really need an
aligned SCR target then. Pierre, is there any way we can have the MMC
core align DMA targets for pxa25x?

Just moving elements of the mmc_card structure around seems to be good
enough, but I fear this will break again as soon as the next person
forgets about pxamci's special needs on pxa25x.
