Lets hear from MMC folks. Ulf, do you agree on approach
for pwr seq ??

With above approach, I kind of agree on it, but I have couple
of comments,

- How DTS looks like now ?? Can you put example here ?
- Should we merge MMC power sequence in next series ?
We also can take this as an incremental change, to avoid further
delay :)
- Lets also add suspend/resume callback to struct pwrseq

There are some comments I have on the patches,
I will respond directly on respective patches, it would be useful
for next series.

And Sorry for delayed response.
