pandaboard X-Loader boot issue with SD card

I had an issue to boot an A2 pandaboard from a Kingston 512MB SD card, I got the following output from X-Loader:
** Can't read from device 0 **
another Kingston 2GB SD card worked fine

it turned out that the problem is some missing delay in the MMC configuration code of X-loader, i.e. git://, omap4_dev branch (the problem also exists with MLO from the minimal fs)

below patch fixes the issue for me:

diff --git a/cpu/omap4/mmc.c b/cpu/omap4/mmc.c
index efd7860..280e75b 100644

Just got my pandaboard, a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 development board with WLAN, LAN, bluetooth, DVI/HDMI and OpenGL/ES.
