That assumes there is no driver that wants to disable the card detect
interrupts and disable the use of the Present State register, but still use
a Card Detect GPIO and therefore not have MMC_CAP_NEEDS_POLL.

A way forward should provide for drivers do to things like that.

One way is to make selected existing functions into library functions and
provide callbacks for them.  In this case do with sdhci_set_card_detection()
what Russell King did with sdhci_reset().  However Ulf is against new callbacks.

I would much prefer the structure for a SDHCI library be put in place, or at
least agreed to, before individual quirks are tackled.

In my view Ulf needs to explain how the SDHCI library is going to work,
particularly in the absence of new callbacks.
