Ah, right you are. Sorry.

With my Sim.One board, I don't see any interrupt storms at all and I also have
mmc_spi with DMA enabled.

In addition to these messages my board hangs almost every boot.

In the current code we only enable DONE interrupt and we always clear that at
the beginning of the ISR.

The VIC code was changed in 3.3. Its behaviour is different now as it tries to
handle as many IRQs as possible in one go whereas before it only handled one
IRQ at a time. Could it be that the VIC in ep93xx doesn't cope with that?
