SD card problems

The problem with SD card on Yoggie SOHO seems to be fixed already in a newer kernel.

From here:
[PATCH] pxamci: fix byte aligned DMA transfers

> The pxa27x DMA controller defaults to 64-bit alignment. This caused
> the SCR reads to fail (and, depending on card type, error out) when
> card->raw_scr was not aligned on a 8-byte boundary.

aww crap, now that was the problem!
I already suspected something as such (possible alignment issue),
even dug down to closer inspection of raw_scr address, however didn't actually
manage to find it at that time (I was more inching towards timing or transfer
length issues).

Thanks a _lot_, that fixed phone boot for me on my affected SD card!
