I put a kernel based upon 3.17 on an exynos5250-snow (specifically
git:// branch
max77802-op-modes-v3, git hash 98cf5a0). Snow uses the builtin card
detect on dw_mmc. Resume wasn't terribly reliable to start with even
without my patch (it often woke up right after suspend), but it worked
well enough for testing. I tested the following scenarios:

1. Leave card in and mounted. Suspend/resume. Card is still usable
after resume

2. Suspend and insert card. Resume. Card is detected upon resume.

3. Suspend and remove card. Resume. Card is removed upon resume.

How does that sound?
