Fairly simple. "dev_use" was being allocated as a zero length array
because of bad math on 64-bit systems causing a crash in
find_first_zero_bit(). One-liner follows:

diff --git a/drivers/mmc/card/block.c b/drivers/mmc/card/block.c

-static unsigned long dev_use[MMC_NUM_MINORS/(8*sizeof(unsigned long))];
  * There is one mmc_blk_data per slot.
