Right, and indeed someone may decide to plug in something that isn't a
WiFi device at all but some other SDIO attached device with totally
different uses for those GPIOs.  Really these boards are an example of
the sort of thing I was talking about with modular reference systems,
though a simpler case as given what's brought out you probably can just
do something like list all the options that are there and allow hotplug
to sort things out.
