Okay, sounds like this may be a different problem then. Can you share
the complete log and the kernel config?
I can prepare a debug patch as well, if you are willing to re-run the test?

Adding a post-power-on-delay-ms of 1 ms as you suggested [1], doesn't
sounds like the correct solution to me, unless I am overlooking some
things. The point is, since the mmc core succeeds to detect and
initialize the SDIO card, the power sequence seems to be correct.

Kind regards
Uffe
