I have started to look into it, when I was working on that
driver. First sorry for me doing nothing in the last few
month. Generally the two drivers seem to be very similar, the main
difference is the code for tuning. In the staging driver. this is a
total mess. It tries to account for tuning itself, so it also tries to
account which command was executed (succesfully) before a tuning is
necessary and reexecutes it, when it was the APP_CMD. But there are
still some differences in the tuning code, that are not due to
handling it in the driver.

If have mainly understand how to remove the 'in driver handling' of
the tuning and thing I could prepare a patch for that. But the
differences in the tuning code itself, I do not understand

There are two other larger differences that I found during my
work. One is that drivers/mmc/host/mtk-sd.c has much more features,
like voltage and clock handling and some support for high speed
modes. I don't know if these features are required/useful for this
device. The other thing is the card detect handling. This driver is
doing the card detect / read only detection on its own, where the in
tree one just uses some default gpio functions there and I don't know
weather this must be changed or weather there is a gpio driver for the

That is all I currently remember. Hope it helps.
