While working with Dove's SDHCI, I thought about the upstream registers
again. Dove's SDHCI shares those registers with Camera IP which makes
it difficult to find a good DT representation again.

Maybe we should think about moving upstream register setup to mbus
driver instead? That would also allow us to get rid of mvebu specific
boiler plates from those standard (fooHCI) IP drivers.
