Subject[PATCH] mmc: sdhci: Don't signal the sdio irq if it's not setup
With 3.14.29 (and older kernels) some of my I.mx6 Sabrelite boards were
crashing with the following oops:

sdhci: Secure Digital Host Controller Interface driver
sdhci: Copyright(c) Pierre Ossman
sdhci-pltfm: SDHCI platform and OF driver helper
sdhci-esdhc-imx 2198000.usdhc: could not get ultra high speed state, work on normal mode
mmc0: no vqmmc regulator found
mmc0: SDHCI controller on 2198000.usdhc [2198000.usdhc] using ADMA
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 00000000
pgd = c0004000
[00000000] *pgd=00000000
Internal error: Oops: 5 [#1] SMP ARM
Modules linked in:
CPU: 0 PID: 0 Comm: swapper/0 Not tainted 3.14.29 #1

PC is at wake_up_process+0x8/0x40
LR is at sdhci_irq+0x748/0x9c4

Full boot log can be found at:

This happens if the sdhci interrupt status contains SDHCI_INT_CARD_INT,
while the sdio irq was never setup. This patch fixes that in a minimal
way by checking if the sdio irq was setup.

In more recent kernels this bug went away due to refactoring done by
Russel King. So an alternative (potentially better?) fix for this patch
is to cherrypick the following patches from a recent kernel:

18258f7239a6 - genirq: Provide synchronize_hardirq()
bf3b5ec66bd0 - mmc: sdio_irq: rework sdio irq handling
41005003bcaf - mmc: sdhci: clean up interrupt handling
781e989cf593 - mmc: sdhci: convert to new SDIO IRQ handling
