Yes, I think all H6 boards with eMMC support HS400. If you didn't already
erase Android from eMMC, I suggest to run it and grep dmesg for HS400. I'm
pretty sure it will be there.

Oh, I missed that property. I'll check. However, we can't blindly set max-
frequency. According to user manual, HS400 supports lower max. frequency than
HS200.

Actually both. BSP always adjust both calibration values at the same time
based on table from DT.
