This needs to be clarified, preferable also in a function header.

If I understand correctly, the SDIO func driver needs the host to be
claimed when it calls mmc_expect_errors_begin(). More importantly, it
also needs to be keep it claimed until after it had called
mmc_expect_errors_end(). Correct?

Please remove the WARN_ON. If you believe there is a need for
reference counting, then please add that instead (but likely not in
the phase?).

Ditto.

These new APIs seems to be useful solely for SDIO. Even if it turns
out later that they can be made generic, I suggest to start with a
SDIO func API instead.

However, using a new host variable (->expect_errors) is fine by me.

The API prevents a new re-tune to be "scheduled" in case requests are
failing with -EILSEQ.

To better reflect that, may I suggest to rename this to
sdio_retune_crc_disable() and sdio_retune_crc_enable(). Or something
along those lines.
