    SubjectRe: [mmc] alternative TI FM MMC/SD driver for 2.6.21-rc7
    Have you looked at the last version (0.8)? It fixed all outstanding issues (as far as I know).

    Hi,

    The device is present in many notebooks. Notebooks depend heavily onsuspend/resume functionality.
    tifm_core/7xx1/sd family is an ambitous,but uncompleted project. It used to crash on resuming, or
    hang up onsuspending. A less common failure used to be trigerred by a fast cardinsert/removal
    sequence. Finally, tifm_sd module needs to be manuallyinserted.

    I have found it easier to rewrite the driver, than to fix. This driveris kind of mutant. The bones
    are taken from sdhci and omap, the meat -from tifm_*. It contains all features (and bugs except
    named above) oftifm_* as it was in kernel 2.6.21-rc7.

    I have been testing this version since linux-2.6.18 (daily readingphotos from cards, daily
    suspending/resuming) without a single glitch.

    This patch only provides sources.

    Alex Dubov has done exceptionally great lots of work to teach linuxspeak to TIFM. This is just a
    reorganization of his project.

    The driver seems to be practically stable, but it definitely must betested by more people. Please
    also report any issues with this driverto linux bug#8352 so that valuable info is not lost.

    Best regards,
    Sergey Yanovich
