mmc: bcm2835: Add new driver for the sdhost controller.

The 2835 has two SD controllers: The Arasan sdhci controller (supported
by the iproc driver) and a custom sdhost controller.  This patch adds a
driver for the latter.

The sdhci controller supports both sdcard and sdio.  The sdhost
controller supports the sdcard only, but has better performance.  Also
note that the rpi3 has sdio wifi, so driving the sdcard with the sdhost
controller allows to use the sdhci controller for wifi support.

The configuration is done by devicetree via pin muxing.  Both SD
controller are available on the same pins (2 pin groups = pin 22 to 27 +
pin 48 to 53).  So it's possible to use both SD controllers at the same
time with different pin groups.

The code was originally written by Phil Elwell in the downstream
Rasbperry Pi tree.   In preparation for the upstream merge it was
cleaned up and the code base was moderized by Eric Anholt, Stefan
Wahren and Gerd Hoffmann.

This selects the BCM2835 SDHOST MMC controller. If you have
a BCM2835 platform with SD or MMC devices, say Y or M here.
Note that the BCM2835 has two SD controllers: The Arasan
sdhci controller (supported by MMC_SDHCI_IPROC) and a custom
sdhost controller (supported by this driver).
If unsure, say N.
