Yup, I was just pointing out that possibly others were trying to get a
little bit of margin (not going all the way down to 2.7V) too.

You could add a function to the core that we could call from
dw_mci_switch_voltage() and it would do all the work except trying to
set the UHS register.  That would certainly make it easy.  That could
try to set the highest voltage that is <= vmmc when we're at
