i dont understand what's confusing. the Blackfin on chip host controller only
supports 1-bit MMC, but it supports 4-bit SD/SDIO. this is a fact. while it
may be a stupid decision, it is what it is, and i need the framework made
more flexible in order to get the Blackfin driver merged cleanly. we do
software for hardware, we dont do hardware.
