Fix SDIO suspend/resume regression introduced by
4c2ef25fe0b847d2ae818f74758ddb0be1c27d8e "mmc: fix all hangs related to
mmc/sd card insert/removal during suspend/resume":

[ 5647.367082] PM: Some devices failed to suspend

4c2ef25fe0b847d2ae818f74758ddb0be1c27d8e moved the card removal/insertion
mechanism out of MMC's suspend/resume path and into pm notifiers
(mmc_pm_notify), and that broke SDIO's expectation that mmc_suspend_host()
will remove the card, and squash the error, in case -ENOSYS is returned
from the bus suspend handler (mmc_sdio_suspend() in this case).

mmc_sdio_suspend() is using this whenever at least one of the card's SDIO
function drivers does not have suspend/resume handlers - in that case
it is agreed to force removal of the entire card.

This patch fixes this regression by trivially bringing back that part of
mmc_suspend_host(), which was removed by 4c2ef25fe0b847d2ae818f74758ddb0be1c27d8e.

It may still be desired to further clean this area up by using the card
removal mechanism in mmc_pm_notify() for SDIO as well.

To use mmc_pm_notify's card-removal code also for SDIO, we need it
to check if all the SDIO functions have suspend handlers. That
would probably make us add a new bus_ops handler (something like
host->bus_ops->remove_card_on_suspend ?).

It's starting to get a bit complicated though, and I'm not sure it
would make the code a lot more readable.

In addition, this would still not work for drivers like libertas sdio,
which do have a suspend handler, but sometimes let it return -ENOSYS,
expecting mmc_suspend_host() to remove the card and squash the error.
For those cases, we still need the old card-removal logic in mmc_suspend_host().

This brings up a question whether libertas_sdio really needs this
functionality; When MMC_PM_KEEP_POWER is not needed, can't it just return 0
(and as a result the card will be powered down, but not removed) ?

Until we have an agreement on this, I suggest we at least fix the
regression with this patch.

Thanks Sven Neumann for reporting and testing the issue and this patch.
