It's not even our own workaround - it's just what the SDIO stack does
when a driver doesn't support "real" interrupts.

drivers/mmc/core/sdio_irq.c:sdio_irq_thread is actually pretty clever
and tries to predict when interrupts are likely to happen, so it polls
more often when there's activity, then gently slows down again.
