Hi Maxime,

Adding linux-sunxi and Jernej Skrabec to this discussion.

After discussing with Jernej about this issue, I understood that:
- Automatic delay calibration is not implemented
- We also miss some handling of DDR related bits in control register

So none of H5/H6 boards should actually work.
(Some 'lucky' boards seem to work enough to switch to HS200 mode...)

To "fix" this the H5 disable the HS-DDR mode in sunxi mmc driver :
https://github.com/torvalds/linux/blob/master/drivers/mmc/host/sunxi-mmc.c#L1409

I'm not sure about A64 but it looks like the property "mmc-hs200-1_8v"
for the PineBook shows the same issue.

The proper way would of course be to implement the missing feature
mentioned above.
But this could take some time and as the eMMC driver is actually
broken wouldn't it be better to disable the HS-DDR for H6 in the mmc
driver like it's done for H5 ?

Clement
