Right; there are two types of driver: ones
that can correctly report whether the card
has been removed ... and ones that can't That
default behavior presumes the latter.

The MMC/SD framework doesn't know about these
two types

reference: the easy way to do the former involves
setting up the GPIO used for card detect as a
(wakeup?) IRQ source.

One suggestion was syncing before suspend...
but that would require coordinating the
block layer and PM framework. That seems
like it'd be generally a wise thing to do;
no point in losing the write cache, ever.
