Okay, I can remove the dt flag

Well I think we still have a very small sample size, the sun4i, sun5i
and sun7i boards (all using the same mmc controller afaik) have the
broken-hpi set, the sun6i and sun8i seem to be working fine (different
mmc controller?).
I'm not so sure it is an eMMC specific problem though. The module we're
using is a high-end micron part, industrial grade. Granted, it could be
still broken there, but I find it less likely. Micron has an
interessting technical document:
"TN-52-05 e.EMMC Linux Enablement"
talking specifically about HPI on eMMC.
It also mentions HPI is a mmc/jedic 4.41 thing, afaik our controller is
only 4.3 (which might not even matter according to Ulf if it is just a
command).

The datasheet of the chip I use, MTFC4GACAANA, also mentions explicitly
that it supports HPI.

Granted, it could still be broken, but I have doubts.

Yeah it is very limited, that is true, and I suppose I can live with that.

Actually, 4 :), there are 3 sun5i (tablets?) devices that suffer from
this and my device now. The sun6i and sun8i devices are only 2 (the
sinlinx devices in the current kernel) that a very quick grep (mmc-card
) showed. Grepping for non-removable yielded a bit more, like the chip
sun5i-like device with a "non-removable" mmc, not sure what to make of
that though.

I would still recommend to add the capability and raise the flag for the
sun[457]i devices though, as my gut thinks it's a problem with the sunxi
IP there. But with the emmc-card level work around, it does solve/fix
it, so what is the best way?
