Well, that ti,wl1251 chip is so old [1] that probably the SDIO spec did
deviate from what the vendor thought it will look like :)

Yes, that is how it already was in the omal_hsmmc driver quirks.

That is interesting.
Yes, maybe it can be the basis. At least for finding the chip and driver.

BR and thanks,
