You have host->ops->set_clock, which you currently have set to
sdhci_set_clock().  If you need to do something different, please replace
that method with your own version - its fine to either wrap sdhci_set_clock()
or replace it entirely.

sdhci_set_clock() may benefit from being factored a little, so that it's
easier to replace parts of it.
