    Sure, and the card clock is derived from the HCLK, as you describe below.

    I think, even getting the driver work with half the maximum speed (without
    the 1:1 speed) would be a good progress for SH. And I personally have no
    idea how I could "find" that divider-disable bit. Please notice, that I'm
    away for a week starting tomorrow, hopefully, Magnus will be able to
    further work with you on this during this time.
