Re: [RFC] 1/4 MMC layer

I'd be very happy to see MMC support getting into the vanilla kernel. I'm about to purchase a HP NX7010 which has a currently unsupported MMC/SD card reader. It is my intention to attempt to write a driver for this reader (a Winbond w83l518d) and it'll make it easier with the MMC routines already in the kernel.
Memory cards are beginning to replace floppys so the sooner linux has good support for them the better =)

Are there any reason SD[IO] is left out? From what I can gather the unencrypted parts of SD are in the open now. Am I missing something here?

As there haven't been any comments, can I assume that either people
don't care, or people are happy for this to appear in Linus' tree?

(I actually suspect its out of peoples minds having been buried by
about 4 days of lkml.)
