When using 50 ohms on our board in HS-400 mode (200 MHz), then
we see communication errors. These are cause by additional components
on the clock line, which damp the 200 Mhz signal too much.

We could do the following:

* sdhci.c provides a default implementation to set the drive impedance (in HOST_CONTROL2,
  like it is done already now as part of sdhci_set_ios())
* sdhci-of-arasan.c installs an alternative implementation in case of Rockchip's eMMC controller
* the alternative implementation uses a callback to the Rockchip's eMMC phy driver
* the Rockchip eMMC phy driver sets the drive impedance accordingly

But still we would need a mechanism to override this for our board.
And exactly this override mechanism is provided by the patch series.

Thanks,
Christoph
