Sorry, I may have made it sound like more serious than it is. Yes,
what I said is true, but we (Google) does not plan to update those
devices to the latest kernel. That regression will only be seen by any
developers who try to do it on their own.

Also, the commit I mentioned above was put in long time back, and I
think it is more reasonable to put a fix in the sdhci driver instead.

I tried using Andy's suggestion yesterday, but was faced with more
questions that I did not have answers to (with my limited

- It seems that 1 SDHCI device may support multiple slots. It was not
clear to me if they could share card detect interrupts, or should have
separate ones? Also, the driver may not really know? So should I add 1
or two pins using the devm_acpi_dev_add_driver_gpios().
