Yes, the last two "DMA boundary" bits are reserved, and the first
one is re-used for blksz of 4096 bytes.

Eh. But well, OK. We can always persuade you later. :-)

I'll get rid of this particular patch, and put some BLOCK_SIZE
magic into the writew accessor (to clean the DMA bits) instead.

Though, I'll prepare another patch to force blksz to 2048, since
eSDHC specifies "3" in the blksz capability bitfield, and that
causes SDHCI core to fall back to the 512 byte blocks.

Not sure, maybe `dd bs=' can use it? A bit lazy to check this
right now, but from the quick tests, enabling/disabling "blksz
of 4096 bytes" doesn't cause any performance change. At least
with the ordinary SD cards.
