The quirk is controlled by MMC_RICOH_MMC configuration option. At least
as a short-term fix a bit better than patching the kernel, building one
with that config option disabled should have the same effect.

From the commit messages, the quirk was required to support MMC (as
opposed to SD) cards in the SD slot. I would assume this will be an
issue with the chip in any machine as the commit indicates that the
hardware in the chip detects MMC cards and doesn't expose them through
the SDHCI function.

It looks like the quirk was only enabled by default in 2015, at least
upstream [1], though in Debian it was enabled in May 2010 going by their
git repo, maybe in 2.6.32-16.
