The latest kernels fail to boot from SDCard on OMAP and Tegra

patch for omap and tegra configs to enable MMC support (built-in)
Description of problem:
The latest kernels (3.6.x) fail to boot from SDCard on Panda (OMAP) and Trim Slice (Tegra). The F17 kernels would boot from SDCard, so this appears to be a regression. The issue is a change in the kernel config files that made MMC support modules instead of built-in. Since the modules are not loaded correctly, or do not function correctly as modules, the rootfs is not found, causing the boot to fail.
I suggest reverting the config changes until functional MMC module support has been completed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.6.0-0.rc3.git2.1.fc18 (and newer)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest kernel for OMAP or Tegra
Fails to find the rootfs on the SDCard.
Systems find the rootfs and completes the boot.
The last known-good version from F17 was: kernel-3.5.3-1.
Using the attached config changes (based on the 3.5.3 kernel), both systems boot from SDCard as expected.
I have some issues with this patch. For OMAP at least it looks like we have a cleaner fix.
Specifically, what issues?
Do you have a scratch build that incorporates the 'cleaner fix' that we can test?
Fixed in 3.6.1
