That is what I had expected.

Ah, looks good.

It seems to be a hen or egg issue here. MMC_QUIRK_NONSTD_SDIO should be set
before we can match by vendor and device or compatible. But it can't be set

Combining your suggestions we could do roughly:

in mmc_sdio_init_card():

	if (host->ops->init_card)
		host->ops->init_card(host, card);
		mmc_fixup_device(host, sdio_prepare_fixups_methods);

Next we need a location for the sdio_prepare_fixups_methods table and functions.

For "ti,wl1251" we would then provide the entry in the table and a function doing
the setup. But where should these be defined? Likely not in a header file like
quirks.h? But there is no quirks.c.
