The documentation at
claims that the slot only supports TrueIDE and PIO/Taskfile mode, which
are the two modes for CF memory cards. Of course this is highly dependent
on what you load into the FPGA that implements the CF interface on
the versatile express, but at least for the currect Versatile Express
FPGA load it should be right.
Also, the patch makes sense regardless of versatile express, it's just
One extension we might want to add eventually is support for the UDMA
modes that are present on most of the current CF cards but not supported
by this driver (AFAICT).
