OK. Yeah if it's part of the MMC controller it makes no sense to
separate it. So then the conecrns are using alternate DMA
implementations and keeping PM runtime working :)

BTW, Felipe mentioned that the best thing to do in the long run would
be to set up sdhci-omap.c operating in ADMA mode.

Felipe, care to summarize what you had in mind?
