SubjectRe: [RFC 0/4] sdhci: few patches for ENE 712 support
Hi Wolfram,

going back to an old thread from March:


Luis had problems with ath6kl (driver for ar6003 wifi chip using sdio)
and PCI ENE 712 SDIO extender and he had to use few ugly patches to get
it working. Later this year I inherited all this. I have been using the
hack patches until now but finally I started debugging this and I can
provide more information.

I tried 0x8028 as well and it didn't help. But what I noticed was that
enabling SDHCI_QUIRK_FORCE_1_BIT_DATA with 0x00400038 makes it work.

Also I did some debugging on the hack patches and found out that the
hack patch below also makes ath6kl work with my ENE card. As suspected,
rest of the changes from the patches Luis sent were not needed.

So only needed change was to force 1 bit mode while the bus is idle. Any
ideas what would be the best way to fix this?

I'm currently using 3.1.0-rc2-wl+ from ath6kl.git which is based on
wireless-testing on an x86 32bit box. I can provide more information and

This is the device I have, it should be similar (if not the same) as Luis':

I tried with my 1GB SD card from my camera and oddly enough I didn't see
any new devices in /dev/sd*. But I don't know if I was missing some
important kernel config options, I have used this ENE card only with
ath6kl. I will retest this later.
