I agree we should not add a dt flag for this, we can simply set the
flag in the host driver if we believe this is a host issue.

When we discussed this a while back we had a pretty small sample
set of sunxi boards with emmc, and it seemed that hpi was broken
on all of them. But recently we've been seeing eMMC-s on a lot more
boards and they all work fine, except the one on my Utoo A13 tablets,
and the one you are using, so this does really seem be an eMMC
specific problem. That or it is a problem with the host on sun4i/sun5i/sun7i
which is not present on sun6i, sun8i and later ...

But given how rare eMMC-s are on sun4i/sun5i/sun7i I think the current
solution where we set a flag on the emmc dt node rather then on the
host node / in the host driver is fine.

Taking your case into account too, that will bring us up to 2 cases
where we set the broken-hpi flag on the emmc node, which does not
really seem like a number to worry about.

TL;DR: Thanks for writing this patch set, but given recent developments
I believe that it is best to keep handling broken-hpi as we are doing
in current kernels and no changes are necessary.

Regards,

Hans
