Yay!  Is this good enough to tide you over until DRM support lands?

This is a regression that was introduced by:

9795a84 mmc: dw_mmc: remove dw_mci_of_cd_gpio/wp_gpio()

In "exynos5250-cros-common.dtsi" you can see that the "wp-gpios =
<&gpc2 1 0>;" is still listed under the slot node.  Nobody is looking
there anymore.

This is fixed in linux-next by:

aaa25a5 ARM: dts: unuse the slot-node and deprecate the
supports-highspeed for dw-mmc in exynos

I'll let Kukjin decide what he wants to do about the regression in
v3.17 (how to deal with conflicts, backporting, etc).
