I didn't realize that U-boot was supporting multiple environment
candidates now. Will try to find another place to initialize mmc.

Do I understand correctly that you will always initialize the MMC
sub-system if it is a candidate for reading the environment, even
when the environment is read from elsewhere?

In this case I hereby NAK this patch.

U-Boot shall always use lazy initialization and never ever initialize
hardware which it does not really use - see especially item 2 at
[1].

Yes. Will fix in v2.

Shouldn't that be CONFIG_ENV_EXT4_INTERFACE ?
