This could explain why only MSC0 generates a CLK output. But we have proper
pinctrl in the DTS so it should also be set up for MSC1?

Ok! Then we probably should add code to make Linux more independent of
any U-Boot setup. I.e. make no assumptions...

Ok, we might end up in a mix of several bugs where each single one makes
MMC not working:)
