[PATCH] mmc: core: Fix power sequence ordering in mmc_power_up

Currently, mmc_power_up calls the pre_power_on callback, enables the
power supply of the mmc by calling mmc_set_ios() and then call
post_power_on. WiFi chipsets like the AP6335 require a specific power
sequence ordering before being used. You must enable the power supply
and wait until it reaches its minimum voltage, gate the clock and wait
at least two cycles and then assert the reset line.

This commit prevents regulators to be enabled in the middle of or after
the power sequencing. We this fix, mmc_set_ios is first call, the
underlying regulators are enabled, then pre_power_on and post_power_on
are called, so clock and reset line are enabled in the right order,
after the regulator.
