I'm working on those same Chromebooks.  ;-)  I'm working on trying to
make them well on newer kernels.

...but I guess you're saying that the problem faced by the people who
wanted commit 29f6589140a1 ("brcmfmac: disable command decode in
sdio_aos") are similar to the problems we saw in the past on those
Chromebooks.  I'd tend to agree.  In general it's difficult to get a
SD Host Controller to be fully robust in the fact of any/all errors on
the bus.  While dw_mmc is pretty robust these days I'm assuming that
some other host controllers aren't.

I'd be fine with a full revert too.  Presumably that will break
someone but maybe they need to come up with a better solution?
