For what it's worth, I previously investigated a Dell e6400 with an
0x822
and an 0x823 and even without the MMC function disabled, the SD
function
would get the SD card. The machine I currently have access to just has
the 0x822 function so I doubt it can be used to prove anything.

I was under the impression they'd changed the priority of the
controllers
(and probably requiring the MMC driver to set a flag to make it steal
cards)
