The card-present polling for sdhci based driver is very expensive
in terms of the impact to system performance.  We observe a few
system performance issues from Freescale and Linaro on mx5 platforms,
which have been proved card polling related.

The patch set extends the current sdhci-esdhc-imx card_detect and
write_protect support to cover mx5 platforms, and solves above
performance issues.

Changes since v3:
 * Address comment from Philip Rakity on sdhci_set_card_detection
 * Change a couple of dev_warn to dev_err in sdhci-esdhc-imx.c per
   Arnaud Patard's comment
 * Add Arnaud Patard's Test-by
 * Add missing Acked-by, Cc stable on patch #2

Changes since v2:
 * Fix the issue reported by Arnaud Patard:

Changes since v1:
 * Rebase on today's linux-next
 * Take the suggestion from Arnaud Patard to add default pdata in
   imx_add_sdhci_esdhc_imx(), to avoid touching every single board
   file for the platform_data changes
 * Add comment for sdhci.c change
   descriptive name
 * Add missing NONE case handling in esdhc_pltfm_get_ro
 * Improve a couple comment wording per suggestion from Wolfram Sang
