No problem, this just got lost in all the noise.
I tried all kinds of approaches to make hotplug reliable, before finally
making it be so. (It is really stable here, I didn't have any hotplug

In fact I feel that my xd card is more stable that sd one...
(I recently found a bug in sdhci driver....)
I would be very happy to receive a full review of the patches, and get
it in the kernel.
