Sorry i mean Kishon instead of Kihon above.
Based on some tests it seems that the duovero unpaired regulator usage
is fixed by reverting:
c55d7a055364 ("mmc: host: omap_hsmmc: use regulator_is_enabled to
find pbias status")
And it seems that omap3 legacy MMC is broken earlier in the
7d607f917008 ("mmc: host: omap_hsmmc: use
devm_regulator_get_optional() for vmmc")
This one does not cleanly revert so have not yet tried reverting
I'm at ELCE so there may be delays for me debugging stuff. Anybody
see obvious places to fix with those two patches above?
