Even if they weren't lost the resume code currently has this statement:

DW_MCI_ERROR_FLAGS); that would have clobbered any existing state even if register
state wasn't lost. ;-)

There's a slight bit of subtleness here and I guess we need to figure
out if it matters. From testing things seem to work OK so maybe we're
fine, but just to explain what's bugging me:

If we got an SDIO interrupt that was never ACKed then this is going to
act like an implicit ACK. Notice that dw_mci_ack_sdio_irq() is
exactly this call because when the SDIO IRQ fires we mask it out.
...then unmask when Acked.

Specifically after your series is applied, I think this is what
happens if an interrupt fires while the SDIO bus is officially

1. dw_mci_interrupt() will get called which will mask the SDIO IRQ and
then call sdio_signal_irq()

2. sdio_signal_irq() will queue some delayed work.

3. The work will call sdio_run_irqs()
4. sdio_run_irqs() _won't_ ack the IRQ, so it will stay disabled.

5. When we get to the resume we'll re-enable the interrupt.

I guess that's fine, but it is a little weird that we might not really
be restoring it simply because it got disabled due to the clobbering
of INTMASK but also because we implicitly skipped Acking an interrupt
that fired.

I wonder if the correct fix is to just add an explit zeroing of the
INTMASK (so mask all interrupts) in dw_mmc's suspend callback. Then
there's no possible way we could get an interrupt during suspend...
