When a platform is running at high frequencies it's not always
possible to scale-down a frequency to a requested value, and using
mmc_spi driver this leads to the following printk flood during card
polling:

  ...
  mmc_spi spi32766.0: Requested speed is too low: 400000 Hz. Will use
  520828 Hz instead.
  mmc_spi spi32766.0: Requested speed is too low: 400000 Hz. Will use
  520828 Hz instead.
  ...

Fix this by using WARN_ONCE(), it's better than the flood, and also
better than turning dev_err() into dev_dbg(), since we actually want
to warn that some things may not work correctly.
