I haven't seen the issue that Yuvaraj is reporting (but I also haven't
picked up all of the relevant patches and tried to reproduce), so I'm
going to have to leave it to Yuvaraj to answer.

As far as I know the dw_mmc driver ought to be enabling vqmmc when it
needs it.  Perhaps there's a bug in your patch series that adds vqmmc
support to dw_mmc?
