I wrote a driver for one SD/SDIO host controller, played with the code
for two other controllers, and wrote part of the SDIO stack. All this
share common infrastructure with pure SD cards. Hence my interest in
the topic due to the overlap, especially at the low level. I'm less
familiar with the filesystem issues that Arnd is mentioning though.

SDIO is also becoming important as this is often the preferred
interconnect for wireless chips.
