Maybe a small fix for a skilled developer, but a giant leap for all
users ;-)
MMC performance goes from: (4.15-rc1)

SD: Timing buffered disk reads: 36 MB in 3.17 seconds = 11.35 MB/sec
eMMC: Timing buffered disk reads: 66 MB in 3.03 seconds = 21.81 MB/sec

to: (4.15-rc2 plus those two patches)

SD: Timing buffered disk reads: 68 MB in 3.01 seconds = 22.61 MB/sec
eMMC: Timing buffered disk reads: 132 MB in 3.01 seconds = 43.80 MB/sec

So yes, factor of two ...

Tested-by: Andre Przywara <>

Given the impact I wonder if this is a candidate for stable as well.

But the BSP doesn't set those as well, does it? I mean to remember that
they were all zero, expect for HS200/HS400?


One can just force enable DDR modes without tuning the delays,
