I compiled the patch set on top of latest mmc-next, had Per come over
to my desk and fix some test cases, then ran the new stress tests
on U300 plus mounted block device and performed read & write.

I found a bug in COH901318 DMA on the way and now the tests
runs run cleanly. (Patch will go to DMAengine maninainer Vinod.)

Test results below: conclusion is that not much performance is
gained on U300 with MMCI/PL180, this is because we have no
L2 cache, but we still get a small improvement of 1/2 to 1 s per test
case.

The code looks good too.
