I never have seen this before. I'm not testing those patches on
mmc-next, as our platform is not totally upstream yet, and do not boot
on 2.6.37+ based kernel.
However, we backported the pm_runtime patches from 2.6.37. Is there
some differences in very latest patches on default enablement of

So what you have here is non working card-detection when device is in PCI_D3.
This sounds like a HW limitation in you platform.

D3 is originally meant for suspend to ram, so it sounds logic that
some HW wont support wake on card detect.
it sounds like we need a SDHCI_RUNTIME_PM_CAP, so that we can properly
describe which HW can be safely put D3 at runtime.
Also, maybe on some HW, D1 will support wake on card detect. I dont
know how can the driver hint pci subsystem that it should go D1 rather
than D3 in the runtime_pm flow.
Maybe Rafael can advice on this.
