Okay, I see.

Things are not so simple from your details.

I was not enabling SD3.0 support, then I also found HLE sometimes.
So it seems commit 7c5209c315ea does not contibute to this phenomenon.

The scenario looks like:
remove sd-card -> mmc_sd_detect -> send status(CMD13) ->power_off ->
set_ios -> setup_bus -> disabled clk , then HLE irq storm coming

 From the code of dw_mci_prepare_command:
SDMMC_CMD_PRV_DAT_WAIT will not be used for CMD13, so we don't
wait_busy here, then cmd code is loding into queue of dw_mmc but
still failing send out because it's in busy?

With my patch, things go well:
remove sd-card -> clear bit of DW_MMC_CARD_PRESENT  -> send
status(CMD13) return directly -> power_off -> set_ios -> setup_bus -> 
disable clk

So why should we allow inquiry of card status if we sure the card is
removed? I mean no any further cmds should be delivered.

And another question: should we wait busy for cmd13?

Sure, at least we need to address this irq storm...
