I have changed hardware now, from:

Dell E6430 (O2 Micro, Inc. OZ600FJ0/OZ900FJ0/OZ600FJS SD/MMC Card Reader Controller (rev 05))


Dell Latitude 7480 (Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTS525A PCI Express Card Reader (rev 01))

This solves the issue:

mmc0: Internal clock never stabilised.

But instead, with the latest "master", I get:

Wrt firmware, we actually have 4 different versions to choose between, any 

Version: LNX.LEH.
Date in binary: Dec  9 2015

Version: WLAN.TF.1.1.1-00061-QCATFSWPZ-1
Date in binary: Jan 11 2017

Version: LEA.3.0_QDN_r3000017.1
Date in binary: Jul 18 2018

Version: CNSS.LEA.NRT_3.0
Date in binary: Nov  7 2018

The kvalo/ath10k one looks promising, but comes without board file. Are 
there dependencies between the firmware versions and the board files, or 
can we just grab a board file from and use that one 
with the firmware from kvalo/ath10k-firmware?
