Correct on both points :)
The author of this proprietary standard (HMS) calls this a bus, but only
a single card can be connected to a slot. So it's not like pci or usb,
where you can connect multiple devices to a host.

Sure, I can do that. What would be the best location for this?
The commit message? The Kconfig blurb? Comments in host.c?
Somewhere in Documentation/ ?
