From: Jaehoon Chung <jh80.chung@samsung.com>

Now, index of mmc/mmcblk devices is allocated in accordance with probing
time.  If want to use the mmcblk1 for some device, it can use alias.

aliases {
	mmc0 = &mmc0;	/* mmc0/mmcblk0 for eMMC */
	mmc1 = &mmc2;	/* mmc1/mmcblk1 for SD */
	mmc2 = &mmc1;	/* mmc2/mmcblk2 for SDIO*/
};

If there are no corresponding values, it might be allocated with
existing scheme.
