I have encountered an interrupt storm during the eMMC chip probing (and
the chip finally didn't get detected).  It turned out that U-Boot left
the DMAC interrupts enabled while the Linux driver  didn't use those.
The SDHI driver's interrupt handler somehow assumes that, even if an
SDIO interrupt didn't happen, it should return IRQ_HANDLED.  I think
that if none of the enabled interrupts happened and got handled, we
should return IRQ_NONE -- that way the kernel IRQ code recoginizes
a spurious interrupt and masks it off pretty quickly...

Fixes: 7729c7a232a9 ("mmc: tmio: Provide separate interrupt handlers")
Signed-off-by: Sergei Shtylyov <sergei.shtyl...@cogentembedded.com>

The patch is against Ulf Hansson's 'mmc.git' repo's 'fixes' branch.

Changes in version 3:
- simplified the final *return* statement in __tmio_mmc_sdio_irq();
- added the "Fixes:" tag;
- cleaned up the whitespace in the patch description.

Changes in version 2:
- refreshed the patch;
- fixed an article and whitespace in the patch description.
