[PATCH 0/5 RFC] mmc: sdhci-iproc: add bcm2835 support

This patch series based on the suggestion of Scott Branden to implement
bcm2835 support into sdhci-iproc [1].

These changes provide the following advantages:
  * no need to maintain a separate driver for bcm2835
  * improve support and test coverage of bcm2835 mmc support
  * get the rid of SDHCI_CAPABILITIES hack in bcm2835_sdhci_readl
  * increase write performance by avoiding delays in write ops

Patch 1 and 2 adopt two sdhci-bcm2835 fixes to sdhci-iproc. The third patch
tries to specify as much quirks as possible in the bcm283x.dtsi as possible.
Patch 4 and 5 are the actually changes for bcm2835 support.

These series has been tested on Raspberry Pi B with dd (direct I/O):
