Yes, that's what I meant

Strange. Should not be the case, no idea what's happening here.

Look again, we accidently have the same string twice in the driver:

./drivers/mci/omap_hsmmc.c:201:                 dev_dbg(hsmmc->dev, "timedout waiting for cc2!\n");
./drivers/mci/omap_hsmmc.c:224:                 dev_dbg(hsmmc->dev, "timedout waiting for cc2!\n");

The one in line 224 should really be "timeout waiting for reset done".

So what I wanted to know is whether it's the error message in line 201
or 224 that we see. So please change one of them
