I'm not too familiar with the Nvidia Shield so can you please confirm
the following?

The controller in the Tegra114 is SDHCI compliant and as such
sdhci_tegra_probe calls sdhci_add_host. External regulators are
sought in sdhci_add_host with a call to mmc_regulator_get_supply.
Since no external regulators are specified in tegra114.dtsi or
tegra114-roth.dts, mmc->supply.vmmc and mmc->supply.vqmmc are set to
-ENODEV.

The patch you proposed would break Exynos4210 so I don't think it is
appropriate.

Do you understand why this code block is executed on your hardware? I
wouldn't expect it.

Can you provide the relevant parts of the log before the problem occurs?

Thanks,
