You're persistent, I'll give you that.

I already know you think it's okay. But I don't think it is.

There is wayyyyyy to much actual functionality contained in this
driver to be an MFD, and it's all related to reading block devices.
It sounds like there should be somewhere for MMC and Memstick to place
shared code. MFD is not that place however.
