I checked the drivers sourcecode and found that most drivers are using EINVAL
for non-recoverable parameter errors.

The only driver which uses EINVAL for errors which might result from
transmission failures is mmc_spi.

So I think it would be OK to use another error code in mmc_spi for these

* EILSEQ Basic format problem with the received or sent data
* (e.g. CRC check failed, incorrect opcode in response
* or bad end bit)

Would you accept a patch to report another error code in mmc_spi?
