Replying here since I'm not subscribed to linux-mmc.

Commit 9faac7b95 "mmc: sdhci: enable tuning for DDR50" actually breaks
WiFi on SDIO at least for the ASUS X205TA.

I tried to ignore the error from the tuning also for the SDIO card
patching mmc_sdio_init_uhs_card() in drivers/mmc/core/sdio.c but I end
up with the error "Controller never released inhibit bit(s)". At least
in my case CMD19 shouldn't be issued at all to have the SDIO card

Any suggestion how to approach this problem?
