Uffe,

In Cavium's MMC controller, the DMA engine requires software to
specify the addressing mode of the card. For DMA write operations,
the CARD_ADDR field in the MIO_EMM_DMA register is programmed with
a byte address if the media card <= 2GB. If the card is > 2GB, the
address is interpreted as a 512 byte sector address. The SECTOR bit
tells the controller how to interpret the address in CARD_ADDR. If
set to 1, use 512 byte sector addressing, otherwise it is set to 0
and byte addressing is used.
