Yes, this was exactly my intention - leave the workaround in place for a
while while owners fix their quirks then eventually fix types and remove
this when it is no longer needed.

Meanwhile, all stable kernels including the newly released 6.6 have many
broken quirks and at the very least the MMC I have here would
periodically hang when issuing a flush, so as a selfish user I'd
appreciate if this (or something equivalent) could be making its way
towards Linus' tree.
Ulf, would you have a bit of time to move this forward, or should I ask
Greg to temporarily revert Avri's "mmc: core: Capture correct oemid-bits
for eMMC cards" commit in stable trees until the way forward is decided?
