There's the Tomeu patch series that allows to set clock rate
requirements from the user side, I guess that could be easily extended
to integrate some clock side boundaries. That's why I stopped working
on the sun5i MMC clock issue until that patch is merged.

IIRC, there was some opposition to having the muxing assignment in the

It was just timeouting, and actually, it was only working to the SRAM,
and not the DRAM.
Maybe the bootloader sets up the clock muxing already?
