I'm currently working on the "omap5-v3.11-rc3" branch from
git://github.com/rogerq/linux.git, which contains a few necessary
platform patches not upstreamed. In omap5-uevm.dts, there are lines like:

253 &mmc4 {
254     status = "disabled";
255 };
257 &mmc5 {
258     status = "disabled";
259 };

the mmc4 refers to mmc@480d1000, which defines at omap5.dtsi:

417         mmc4: mmc@480d1000 {

I checked Linus' mainline git tree. It is the same about disabled mmc4
in omap5-uevm.dts. And the change is introduced in commit 5dd18b0 of the
mainline kernel.

Anyway, I'll see what exactly happened in the dom0 kernel dealing with
those "disabled" regions.
