Add possibility to configure the driver to only start target once.
This can reduce startup time of SDIO devices significantly since
loading the firmware can take a substantial amount of time.

The patch is also necessary for high latency devices in general
since it does not seem to be possible to rerun the BMI phase
(fw upload) without power-cycling the device.
