That is a very good question. So far we only have confirmation that at
least some eMMCs from Hynix resp. SKHynix definitely do have bad
firmware. I also found out that ASUS resp. Google did disable HPI on
their Nexus 7 tablet. Therefore, we also disabled HPI quite a while ago
in our downstream BSPs which we successfully validated & verified doing
power cuts and running stress tests in our temperature chambers. I
guess we would have to run more extensive tests with mainline with and
without this setting to be able to really answer your question. For now
I just successfully run a few Apalis T30 and Colibri T30 modules with
this setting over the weekend doing both hdparm -t as well as dding
some urandom files to the eMMC in a loop without seeing any issues.
