Please do the mod_timer case also, but please make it a separate patch.
Prior to v4.18 it was essentially a 10-second timer, without a
preemptible gap afterwards, so extremely unlikely to timeout
prematurely, hence:

Fixes: fc1fa1b7db275 ("mmc: sdhci: Program a relatively accurate SW timeout value")
Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org # v4.18+
