As I wrote, I'd have a mild preference for doing the multiplatform
conversion first and then removing the support in the following merge
window, just in case someone wants that code back.

If everyone wants to see that code die rather sooner than later,
that's fine with me as well.

I think the MMC driver should also be removed when the platform
code is deleted, new code would use the mmci driver anyway.
