[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] SDHC Flash Support...

It is a kernel I've built. It's the bog standard kernel
(kernel-source-rx-34) with no alterations other than the patch submitted
by Philip Langdale applied to it.

The md5sum is 2f0d130cb7b0d7e62f5b1a535927a921 though I'm not sure what
benefit it'll be as it's no guarentee I can be trusted :)

That said, I used the guide here:


and applied the patch from here:


which, though not applying cleanly, was not hard to do.

Then I just flashed the device, rebooted and my previously invisble SDHC
cards were recognised and I was able to fill them. It's far from tested
(at least by me) and I have had the odd reboot but I had a few before
and have no evidence to attribute it to the patch.

There appears to be lots of stuff that's happened to the mmc side of the
kernel since 2.6.18 including speed improvements. I would expect there
to be a more official kernel with these improvements applied before too
