Thanks, it might be.
Other info I have received at

is that there might be something worth examining at

A few notes: The MMC driver there is basically the 4.9 mtk-sd
one with all the patches from maybe 4.17 or 4.18 backported.

might be useful.

I'll look more on the weekend if no-one beats me to it.
