Note I have not tested this code. My primary goal was to submit the idea. I
think I will be able to send a true PR next week.

I confirm it does not have the expected behavior. !mmc_fixup_of_compatible_match()
should be mmc_fixup_of_compatible_match(), sorry.

I think you can add a new fixup table that could be applied earlier (as you
do in your suggestion below).

I think I mostly agree, but why you don't call mmc_fixup_device() if
init_card is defined? (BTW, mmc_fixup_device() takes a card as
first parameter)

I think you can place your function in drivers/mmc/core/card.h. There are
already add_quirk(), add_limit_rate_quirk(), add_quirk_mmc(), etc...
