I've taken a closer look at the downstream Raspberry Pi kernel trees and
I see that the very first bcm2708 commit in the rpi-3.6.y branch
contains all the code that's been used by the U-Boot MMC driver port.

This commit is actually already signed off by popcornmix, and Dom Cobley
previously indicated that's him, and gave his permission to rewrite that
S-o-b to his real name.

Oleksandr, I believe that means that if you can give your S-o-b to the
U-Boot patch you created based on Dom's kernel code, we will be good to
go with the U-Boot patch I posted, and I can then repost it including
fixes for the review feedback it received.
