For what it's worth, I found an old forum post of someone who was
dealing with a crashy kernel on their mt7688. They removed the
mt7621-mmc driver and hacked the clock code out of the mainline
driver. Apparently it worked. I never got around to duplicating
their work, however. (I too ran into severe instability problems with
the mt7621-mmc driver, but they only appeared in conjunction with
using the SLOB allocator. I could never debug it because when JTAG
was turned on, the SDMC peripheral was disabled for some reason I
never discovered. More info on that if someone is interested.)

The correct way to do this would be to have a "compatible" flag that
bypassed the clock handling code. I don't think there are any
relevant clocks to set up on the MT7628/MT7688 - the MSDC peripheral
does not appear in the clock plan.

There is a "mtk,mt7621-gpio"-compatible GPIO driver available.
Probably it would work with GPIO on new hardware that did not to route
CD to the CD pin, because the CD pin is muxed using the same "SD card"
pin state as the SD data pins. I do not know if it is possible for
the GPIO peripheral to read the pin while it is muxed to the SD
controller, as would be necessary for existing hardware.
