Hm I'm not sure which is the best way to go.
Actually in the RPi4 we have two sdhci controllers with two different
compatibles. So one support SDMA (brcm,bcm2711-emmc2) while the other
(brcm,bcm2815-sdhci) does not. So I see two possible ways to fix this.
First, add a sdhci-caps-mask to the bcm2835-sdhci device tree node to disable
the SDMA flag.
A second posibility would be to add a flag to disable (S)DMA caps in
On the other hand the kernel only prints in the debug mode that the SDMA
controller is not present. Peng what's the background that you want to keep it a
