timeout_msecs is expired or hit SUNXI_MMC_RINT_INTERRUPT_ERROR_BIT?
If hit ERROR_BIT, did you check which bit is set?

If error is occurred when mmc_change_freq() is running, cid/ext_csd register 
have already read.
It means the controller read the something from eMMC card.

If then..i guess that it's possible to set the initial clock as higher clock 
than 400KHz.
Did you check this?
