I think so. Take marvell berlin for example, card insert => gpio interrupt
or => sdhci runtime resume.

If runtime-pm is builtin and the host driver supports runtime-pm (sdhci-pxav3
supports runtime-pm well), when there's no sdhc transactions, runtime suspend
will be triggered automatically after some time (50ms?)

I checked A38x dts files, it's <&gateclk 17>. So the question is: what will
happen if <&gateclk 17> is disabled in runtime suspend? Is the dat3-based
CD still works? In theory, it should not work any more.
