By reading the changelog, it doesn't tell me the purpose of this
change. When going forward, please work harder on your changelogs.

Make sure to answer the questions, *why* is this change needed,
*what/how* does the change do.

I suggested you to do this change through some of my earlier comments,
however I think it should be made as a stand alone change.

Anyway, when looking at the details in your series, I decided to try
to help out a bit, so I have prepared a couple of related patches for
cleaning up and clarifying the busy detection code/comments in mmci. I
have incorporated the above change, so let me post them asap.

As I told earlier in the review, this looks wrong to me.

It means that you will add the bit for the ->busy_detect_flag to the
status field we have just read from the MMCISTATUS register. That
means the busy status may be set when it shouldn't.

By looking at the other changes in the series, I assume @subject patch
is intended to prepare for the other changes on top. But it's not
really clear.

Anyway, in that regards, the below is my observations of what seems to
be important part, when supporting busy detection for the stm32 sdmmc
variant (except the timeout things in patch2, which I intend to
comment separately on).

I figured, these are the involved register bits/masks:



For the legacy ST variant, there is only one register bit in
MMCISTATUS that is used for indicating busy (MCI_ST_CARDBUSY BIT(24)).
There is no dedicated busy-end bit for the busy-end IRQ, which I
believe is the reason to why the current code also is bit messy.

It seems like the stm32 sdmmc variant have a separate status bit for
the busy-end IRQ, correct?

If I understand correctly by looking at patch3, you don't use the
dedicated busy-end status bit (MCI_STM32_BUSYD0END), right? Then why


Kind regards
