SubjectRe: [PATCH V1] mmc: core: fix still flush cache when eMMC cache off

First, why do you want to turn of the cache ctrl? Is the eMMC device
having issues with it? Then we should invent a card quirk instead.

Second, what errors do you encounter when the mmc core tries to flush
the cache when it has been turned off? Can you please elaborate on
this.

I am sure "cache ctrl" isn't the only thing user space via mmc ioctl
can cause problems for. The mmc core keep tracks of other ext csd
states, etc, as well. I don't think it's worth to compensate and try
to act accordingly to cover cases when user space has messed up.

To be clear, it would have been entirely different if the something
was changed via a mmc sysfs interface. Then we really should act
accordingly, however for mmc ioctls it just becomes unmanageable due
to its flexibility.
