Yeah, that sounds like a better name. Or if people are hung up on
"alternative", perhaps MMC_CAP_ALTERNATIVE_GPT_TEGRA.

I think there's a difference between supporting a quirk and legitimizing
it. I certainly would hate for anyone to come across this "feature" and
then go: "Oh, this is neat, let's implement this on our new platform!".

Fair enough. Perhaps if we put enough warnings in the comments
surrounding this and are vigilant enough during code review we can
prevent this from proliferating. Obviously, once somebody implements
this in their flash/boot stack, it can become difficult to change it,
so by the time we get to review the kernel bits it might already be
set in stone.

Then again, like you hinted at already, once we support it, we support
it. So no real harm is done if anyone copies this.

I don't exactly know how this came about in the first place, but it's
pretty exotic, so I doubt that anyone else will come up with something
like this anytime soon.
