Hi,
Jean Rene Dawin did report to me a problem on the Beagle Bone Black starting
with our disto kernel based on v5.17-rc1:

I checked with my BeagleBoard Black (am3358) and can confirm this observation.
It happens only with the integrated eMMC but not with the µSD connected to
the other mmc interface.

A git bisect found:

76bfc7ccc2fa9d382576f6013b57a0ef93d5a722 is the first bad commit

  mmc: core: adjust polling interval for CMD1

  In mmc_send_op_cond(), loops are continuously performed at the same
  interval of 10 ms.  However the behaviour is not good for some eMMC
  which can be out from a busy state earlier than 10 ms if normal.

  Rather than fixing about the interval time in mmc_send_op_cond(),
  let's instead convert into using the common __mmc_poll_for_busy().

  The reason for adjusting the interval time is that it is important
  to reduce the eMMC initialization time, especially in devices that
  use eMMC as rootfs.

  Test log(eMMC:KLM8G1GETF-B041):

Reverting this makes v5.17-rc[1-4] work.

Any suggestions or fixes?

BR and thanks,
