Ok, the key reason is that the patch introduced in 4.7 assumes that
mmc3 is instantiated through device tree because it now searches the
dma channel through device tree.

But the pdata-quirk for OpenPandora doesn't have a device tree entry.

So we have to get rid of the pdata-quirk code, let DT create the
mmc3 device and driver and have the w1251 as a child node.

This works!


Next, I have to check if we can forward-port this to 4.14, 4.19
and to the tip of the letux development.
