We had mmc reordered for our devices in U-Boot already. That separate
snippet would obviously be obsolete when sync'ing common reordering over.

I'm not sure what you are suggesting. I've sent v2 already which moves
aliasing to SoC level, and I would push that to U-Boot as well if
acceptable. If not, we will keep this in our board DTs.
