I've set the clock to 400M, but it seems the hardware did not output
the corresponding clock. I will check my hardware.

I am not very familiar with CQE, since my controller did not support
it. But the MMC packed function had introduced some callbacks to help
for different controllers to do packed request, so I think it is easy
to adapt the CQE interface.
