Well, relaxing the check for switch errors, is to me a different
thing. This means we are first doing the CMD6, then allowing the
following status command (CMD13) to have CRC errors. Actually, even
the spec mention this as a case to consider. I guess it's because the
card internally have switched to a new speed mode timing.

Allowing CRC errors for the actual CMD6 sound more fragile to me. Of
course, we can always try and see what happens.

Chaotian, can you give it a go? Somehow, change the call to
__mmc_switch() in mmc_hs400_to_hs200(), so the CMD6 doesn't have the
CRC flag set.

Let's see what Chaotian's test may show.

Well, this sounds like a generic problem so if this is a possible
generic solution that would be great.

Is this what sdhci is doing already?

Kind regards
