Indeed. In general, it should be copy-paste issues as folks maybe write
their dts referring to the exist dts there. So yes, I will do some 
cleanup work for them in prevent of further spread of abused code.

yes, we do.

Thanks for noticing this.

Personally, I realize there is no need to check MMC_PM_KEEP_POWER but
it could be highly related to the cost of S-2-R, I guess. I just checked
sdhci and saw the similar cases you mentioned at the first glance.
Maybe I'm wrong but I need more time to investigate this issue later.

There are still some on-going cleanup work for dw_mmc listed on my TODO
list, including bugfix, legacy/redundant code etc.. So I will check this 
one either. Maybe Jaehoon could also do some stree test on enxyos
platforms. :)
