Subject[Regression] 3.15 mmc related ext4 corruption with qemu-system-arm
I've been seeing some ext4 corruption with recent kernels under qemu-system-arm.

This issue seems to crop up after shutting down uncleanly (terminating
qemu), shortly after booting about 50% of the time.

ext4/mmc related dmesg details are:

Bisecting this points to: e7f3d22289e4307b3071cc18b1d8ecc6598c0be4
(mmc: mmci: Handle CMD irq before DATA irq). Which I guess shouldn't
be surprising, as I saw problems with that patch earlier in the
3.15-rc cycle:

However that discussion petered out (possibly my fault for not
following up) as to if it was an issue with the patch or a issue with
qemu. Then the original issue disappeared for me, which I figured was
due to a fix upstream, but now I'm guessing coincided with me updating
my system and getting qemu v2.0 (where as previously I was on 1.5).

$ qemu-system-arm -version
QEMU emulator version 2.0.0 (Debian 2.0.0+dfsg-2ubuntu1.1), Copyright

While the previous behavior was annoying and kept my emulated
environments from booting, this while a bit more rare and subtle eats
the disks, which is much more painful for my testing.

Unfortunately reverting the change (manually, as it doesn't revert
cleanly anymore) doesn't seem to completely avoid the issue, so the
bisection may have gone slightly astray (though it is interesting it
landed on the same commit I earlier had trouble with). So I'll
back-track and double check some of the last few "good" results to
validate I didn't just luck into 3 good boots accidentally. I'll also
review my revert in case I missed something subtle in doing it

Anyway, if there is any thoughts on how to better chase this down and
debug it, I'd appreciate it! I can also provide reproduction
instructions with a pre-built Linaro android disk image and hand built
kernel if anyone wants to debug this themselves.
