It doesn't make sense to clobber the const driver-side buffer, if a
write-to-device attempt failed. All other SSB variants (PCI, PCMCIA and SoC)
also don't corrupt the buffer on any failure in block_write.
Therefore, remove this memset from the SDIO variant.

This memset has been introduced by the original patch that added SDIO support to SSB:
24ea602e183ca
Better late than never.

This change is only build tested, because I don't own the hardware.
But to me this change looks reasonable.
