LED trigger on Kernel 4.1 lights up all the time

We used to use a LED which uses the mmc0 as trigger source. This worked fine on Linux 4.0, however starting with Linux 4.1.5 the LED even lights up when there is no SD card plugged in. How can we fix this somewhat unexpected behavior?

leds {
    compatible = "gpio-leds";
    pinctrl-names = "default";
    pinctrl-0 = <&pinctrl_gpio_leds>;

    led0: user1 {
        label = "user1";
        gpios = <&gpio1 16 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>; /* SODIMM 103 */
        default-state = "off";
        linux,default-trigger = "mmc0";
