It's not just for CompactFlash, it's also for Secure Digital and Memory
Stick.  Note that they refer to it as a reader.  Obviously it's not a
generic bridge.

The Windows driver contains many references to SCSI, which only confirms
that the card is seen as a disk, not as a PCMCIA bridge.

It may have a supported SCSI chip, but it's more likely that you'll have
to write a SCSI driver for it.
