If the new ST variant can cope with the existing order in the current
code, then let's stick to that to avoid breaking legacy variants.

Sometimes it's easier to look at patches/code, instead of giving
qualified guesses what is the best solution. Try something, realize
what is better, then try again...

The point is, we need callbacks to cope with the variants as we can't
have quirks for everything, and you are demonstrating that in $subject

Since this is the case, then I think it's better to make it more
flexible, already from the beginning and thus put the callbacks in a
new mmci host ops structure instead.

Yep, something along those lines. However, we don't want to introduce
unnecessary callbacks and complexity. We should strive towards sharing
common functionality through library functions in mmci.c, rather than
having callbacks for every single difference.

Does it makes sense?


Kind regards
